We bought Windows 8 shortly after, and I began to set up my new itunes library, (much to my dismay - why is there no way of tranfering a library and all your playcounts?).
There is by including your iTunes library or media folder with your computer's backup along with all other important data such as documents, photos, etc.
The problem is that everything will sync to my phone, but my camera roll photos and voice memos don't upload onto the computer like they did on my Windows Vista.
Photos/videos in the iPhone's Camera Roll do not upload to your computer automatically with Vista or any other Windows version and are not included with the iTunes sync process. Photos/videos in the Camera Roll can be imported by your computer as with any other digital camera. When there are photos/videos in the Camera Roll, the iPhone is also detected as a digital camera when connected to your computer. You can set a photo import app to launch automatically on your computer when a digital camera is connected including when the iPhone is connected with there are photos/videos in the Camera Roll, but that is a manual setting on your computer. iTunes is not involved with this process.
Voice memos can be synced with your iTunes library. This is selected under the Music tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes.
