I am having a problem changing the way my pc recognizes my iphone. At the moment it is being recognized as a camera and I am not able to get itunes to sync into it. The error message keeps wanting me to restore to factory settings, but I don't want to lose everything that's on my phone. There must be a way to change the pc from a imaging device to a mp3 player device.
You cannot do that. The PC does not have access to the file system where he music is stored. The only access the PC has is where pictures from the camera roll are. If the phone is displaying something to restore the phone, then the data is already corrupt. You have no choice but to restore.
