    My friend backed up his iPhone to my computer, and when I go to the link "Restore from Backup" I see his backup listed there as well as my backup too.

    I'm pretty sure Itunes saves backups to the following location, and I can definitely see some backups listed in that directory:

    C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

    However, all the backup files seem to be saved with a *.mddata extension.

    Does anyone know if there is a 3rd party software that can extract these backup files to a hard drive folder that can be accessed??

    I want to me able to access his *.mp3 songs that were also saved in his backup.

    Thank you,

    iTunes does NOT include the music files stored on the iPhone into its backup.
    End of story. :D
