How do I get iTunes to "see" my hand-me-down iPhone? I'm on a mac, if that matters.

My boyfriend gave me his old iPhone when he upgraded to a 3G model. I've been using it as an iPod Touch, mainly just for playing games and using Safari and Twitter, etc. I would love to put podcasts and music onto it, if I could only get my iTunes to recognize it when I plug it into my laptop. The iphone is definitely connected, as the phone buzzes and the "charging" screen pops up. I have googled the issue to see if others have had the issue, but they just suggest restarting the computer, and re-installing the newest version of iTunes -- which I did, but no dice. Can anyone help me? I am only semi-computer-literate... Thanks!
