    yeah when you have files transfering between any external memory like iphone, flash drive, or hard drive never unplug. it will damage or in your case delete the files.

    Ya gotta eject first, but the phone wasn't syncing when it happened. I had shazam open, the computer made the sound that the USB has unplugged, then quickly made the sound that it sees it agian, then everything was gone.

    Just resync man, used to happen to my ipod's all the time. All your music should still be on your computer or Reload a backup (Usually makes one before large syncs.)

    Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. It has done it to me before. It just seems like my computer seems to run slower when my iphone is connected.

    Maybe thats a sign that I need a Macbook.:D

    I don't think you have to eject an iPhone. The manual just says "Unless iPhone is syncing with your computer, you can disconnect it from your computer ay any time."

    I've never ejected mine, I just connect it and disconnect it when it is done.

    Not for iPhones but for flash drives you do. And the weird thing was the phone wasn't syncing just sitting there charging there, but it's all good finally done syncing all my stuff back on it.
