HELP! I was updating the latest operating system on my iphone4, but it got stuck in recovery mode. The screen shows an Itunes logo, a USB and an arrow from the USB to the Itunes logo. In Itunes, it says "iTunes has detected a phone in recovery mode. You must restore this phone before it can be used with iTunes." There is no error message or error number. I clicked on the "Restore" button, but it said it will erase everything by restoring the original factory settings. How do I fix this problem without losing all the pictures and videos I took with the phone? Nothing has been transferred to or from the phone except contacts. I only have two songs on the ipod portion of the phone, but would like to preserve them if possible. Please help me save my pictures and videos!
