I had my iPhone (3G) sync'd up with my old computer & iTunes. Unfortunately, that computer bit the dust & there is no way to access that old iTunes. When previously sync'd up with said dead computer, 1500 pictures were put on my iPhone (I want them there for backup) from my old computer though iTunes.
When I downloaded iTunes on my new computer, it's telling me that everything is going to be erased off my phone. I don't want to lose my music, my apps, my contacts, and (most importantly) my photos. I've spoken with an Apple rep on the phone and was told that there's no way to get it off the phone without using a 3rd party software & that Apple doesn't recommend that. I can access the camera roll (the pictures I've taken with the phone) just fine through camera & scanner wizard. I cannot access the Photo Library. I've tried a few 3rd party software systems to no avail (File Aid/Disk Aid seems to be the answer- but it's not picking up any files on my iPhone, I think I'm missing a step somewhere). I know that I can upload each picture to a site (ie Flickr) one by one, but I have 1500 pictures and I'd realllllly like to NOT have to do that. Also, I would prefer to no lose all of my other data (apps, contacts, settings, music) on this phone. Oh, and I would like to upgrade to the 3.0 OS....but I'm scared I'll lose everything.
Help me, please. Please, please, please!
