    I have a new MacBook Pro, OS X 10.6.4 and already owned an iPhone 3G that was synced to my iBook G4.

    My iPhone connects and is recognized in iTunes, but I cannot backup or do anything with the Apps or Music. The photos transferred to iPhoto.

    Any suggestions?

    I don't have an iPhone, but if it's anything like an iPod it can only be associated with iTunes on one computer at a time. If you plug it into another computer, you can't modify music stored on it.

    A quick google search revealed a couple of other threads that might help you:

    Basically, you will need to make sure that all your music library etc. is copied over to your new mac, then you set up the iPhone for use with that computer.

    Did you authorize you new computer? If so it should just sync and back up.
