Hi all. I have previously made a thread on this issue but things have changed since and so has the original problem, so I thought it needed a new discussion.


I'm currently moving my iPhone from my old Vista PC to my newer Macbook Pro (OS X Lion), without losing data.


As advised, I followed this tutorial:


However, after the restore had finished, only my apps were syncing with the new computer. If I want to sync my music or tones etc, it still wants me to erase my iPhone.


Is there another way to get around this? I've reached the stage where it's syncing apps, so I'm almost there... I'd just like to sync the rest too.


All help is appreciated.



iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1
