So, to spare you a long-winded explanation, this is what happened. - Recently I needed to restart my laptop to complete installation of an unrelated program. I went to press 'restart later', but accidently hit 'restart now' and it started shutting down. - During this, I had iTunes open and running. - I restart, and when I open up iTunes EVERYTHING is gone. Nothing remains at all. - Confused, I try to import a 'Previous Library' file into iTunes to attempt to recover all the files, but nothing works at all. - After a few days, I located the files and re-added them to iTunes from scratch. So here's my problem: Now, when I sync, iTunes DOES recognise my iPhone, but it recognises it as a separate device and refuses to let me sync my phone with my iTunes library. So basically, I have two separate libraries on iTunes and it's doing my head in. All I want to do is sync my iPhone with my new library, but am I assuming right in saying a full restore is the only way of achieving this? And won't that mean I will lose all my contacts and text messages with no hope of keeping them? I was hoping for suggestions on what to do, and which way to go about it. Do I bite the bullet and start again, or is there a way I'm ignorant too? Any help would be fantastic! Cheers!
