    Well my 1 1/2 year old MacBook's hard drive decided to fail losing everything on my computer. I have my bookmarks and email setting on .Mac. Although through iTunes I transfered all of my music from my iphone to my mac it doesn't transfer ringtones or pictures. The pictures on my iphone are very important and need them, this is my only copy of them, iPhoto wont import any photos in my library, I realized that I can send them to my web gallery or just email them to myself but thats time consuming with over 500 pictures. And ringtones I have over 10, I wouldn't like to lose them knowing that I spent a ton of time making them, and they weren't free. Thanks for anyones help, I brought a external hard drive and defiantly wont let this happen again.

    The long way...

    I had a similar problem happen while upgrading from tiger to leopard (although my music was stored on an external) I really wanted my pics. After contacting Apple they told me the long way (email every pic to yourself) I checked around various sites but couldn't find a disk utility unless I jailbroke my iphone. I ended up doing it the long way, which sucked but it happens. Sorry I couldn't have been of more help but thats about where Apple tech support will get you as well...
