    So, I had to wipe my iPhone clean and set it up as new (as recommended by my local Genius Bar) because I was having issues with text messages (not iMessages) and voicemails. It seems like the issue is gone, but I now realized that I had some stuff from my backup that I want on my new phone.

    Is there a way to access the photos/videos, etc in that old backup through iTunes without having to actually put it on a device?

    Photos and videos should show in iTunes on computer. So will most documents,just open iTunes on your computer,and look in photo/video folder. If you use a Mac,it will be seen in photos or videos withouth opening iTunes.
