I recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 by doing a clean install. I'm just syncing my iPhone for the first time since, and I noticed that under the "Photos" tab of the iPhone menu, you can't select specific folders within My Pictures anymore. Is there any way to enable this?

iphone 3gs, vista to win7 clean install
hi. I just did a clean install of win7 64bit, from vista 32bit. I copied my appdata folder, and itunes folder to a external hard drive.
I forgot to deauthorize vista, before I installed 7 and itunes and authorized it. Anyway, I've copied my old itunes folder over the new one.
Now I'm just worried about connecting my iphone 3gs. I dont want to lose my music (was on manual sync), apps, and most importantly my contacts by connecting to my computer now. And I want to be able to add/remove songs.
Do I have to copy anything from the vista appdata folder? What files and where? Inside Username/appdata/ there are three options local/local low/roaming - and the all have various apple folders inside them too.
anyhelp would be greatly appreciated!!!

Windows 7 64-bit users: iTunes 9.0.2 x64 which is supposed to be used on all machines running Windows Vista 64-bit as well as Windows 7 64-bit. When I installed it tonight, on a fairly fresh installation of Windows 7 Ultimate (on a Thinkpad W700), it keeps giving me error messages (Unknown errors) every time I sync the iPhone (3G).
I sent the issue to Apple, but maybe someone here has had a similar issue.?
The default installation folder for iTunes 9.0.2 is also totally wrong. It installs itself in "Program Files(x86)", which we all know is the 32-bit folder of any Windows OS in 64-bit flavor. I changed the the install location to the correct one, and it works just as poorly. It did work fine for me in my Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit, but at the time, there was no iTunes 9 yet.
Anybody have anything similar happening on your 64-bit PCs?

I also thought it was strange that iTunes 64-bit installs in the 32-bit Program Files folder, but it's always worked just fine for me there, both under Vista Ultimate 64 and 7 Ultimate 64.
My only suggestion is to make sure you have all Windows updates and install any motherboard drivers and/or BIOS updates from the manufacturer's website.

I just got a new laptop with W7 installed. I been waiting before I moved my iTunes from my XP laptop, thank you but I do have two questions, DO I use the iTunes backup function or I just move the entire folder myself? and am still using iTunes 8.2 on my XP, can I still use 8.2 on W7? Reason why I still use 8.2 is that my iPhone G2 (OS 3.0) is unlocked/jailbroken and I do not want the problems I read about iPhones being relocked with iTunes 9 and other stuff.....Hope I made sense Thank you

I too just got a new Windows 7 machine to replace an old one running WinXP. I'm having some trouble migrating iTunes tho First I tried simply copying the entire My Music folder and launching iTunes. That "seemed" to work, but then I realized there were all these "!". iTunes was telling me it could not locate the file... but I could manually point it to the file and it would work. Problem is there's lilke 2000 of these!!! Apple told me to rebuild the database... but that was a crappy solution because then I lost a ton of album artwork, ratings, plays, etc.
Can anyone suggest anything?? I still have the old machine, so do have that as a backup at least.
Thanks in advance,

Scenario: I was running iTunes together with iPhone on Windows XP SP3. Laptop experienced a 'liquid-related incident" and was fried. Hopefully the HDD was intact.
Now, if the insurance company comes through, weŽll get a new a laptop BUT, for obvious reasons with Windows 7 instead.
So, if I manage to salvage the iPhone backup file from the (hopefully) undamaged HDD - how do I go about getting it to play nice with the new Windows 7-friend?
And is it at all possible?
