    I had a few issues with an iTunes library so i decided to scrap it and start with a brand new library in a new location.

    When I try to backup my iPhone (which I used to backup to my old library). It says iTunes can't backup iPhone because the backup is corrupt or not compatible.

    I have deleted the backups in preferences so there is no history of any backup from any iTunes library past or present.

    Any suggestions?

    The Decipher Backup Repair blog might be helpful for your iTunes issue. It addresses possible solutions for when you get the dreaded error message "could not restore the iPhone because the backup was corrupt."
