    I have iphone 4 synced with my laptop, suddenly my laptop crashed and all my data is lost.

    Now i got a new hardrive for it, now if i sync my iphone with laptop all my data in my iphone are lost. Please recommend me any
    solution so that i still will have my data safe if i sync it.

    How can i take a backup of my iphone and sync the same with iphone connectd to new laptop.

    Someone here might give you the straight scoop but you might also consider calling Apple for assistance. I've always found them to be helpful and knowledgeable.

    why would you lose the data on your iPhone just because you sync it with a newly set up laptop?

    Does it take backup of my ipod also i.e all the songs in the phone and apps. Can i customize the location of my back up or is there any default place it takes back-ups..

    Wrong.


    You need to get your music off using sharepod or expod.

    OP, see my other posts on everything you need to do.
