    I would be a little more helpful.
    Google an application called senuti-itunes in reverse- it will get your stuff from ipod to comuter.
    if you have your device to auto sync and open itunes automaically hold the option key when pluging it in. this will stop the autosync. alternativly you can change the autosync settings in the itunes prefrences

    Wow, hard to believe search and google are broken at the same time? Is your device jailbroken? You always have the option to SSH. Senuti is the app I use also

    lol



    Naa its not jailbroken was gonna do that just after installed XP though :/ lol
    Yeah, thanks senuti is doing it right now but i need to get the photos and contacts and calendars :s if anyone knows a way?

    I found this on an Apple thread:

    "After entering one contact in the Address Book on your Mac, when syncing you should be prompted with a merge option. This will merge the contact information in your iPhone's address book with the Address Book on your Mac. If you are unsure about any prompt or option provided in this regard, cancel the sync until you are sure. "

    but bit scared to try it lol unless anyone knows that its definitely true?
    and id still need the photos :s

    Thanks for help so far.
