Your backup data on your computer got corrupted. It happens. If it's corrupt, you cannot use it. There's nothing to be done. You'll need to set your phone up as a new device. You might also consider running some sort of disk utility on your computer to make sure your hard drive isn't beginning to fail.

That's never good news :(. By using ibackup extractor I'm able to see all the info. However I'm not able to restore from there since I no longer have the original device. I was hoping there would be a work around this
issue or something else I had not considered.

Unfortunately I never set the cloud up. That will be my new project. What gets me is that every single backup since last sept is corrupt :( how can that possibly happen? I have a total of 5 backups since last sept and not one is good. Again not sure if having connected by old 3GS created all the issues?!

Corrupted backups are usually caused by software problems on the iPhone. Or iTunes having some corrupted files. You may need to uninstall and reinstall iTunes. Remember, for Windows you have to uninstall several programs in a certain order. Here's that article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923?viewlocale=en_US
As far as your data goes, I'm sorry but there's nothing anyone can do. You are going to have to build it all back up again.
