Welcome to the Mac Forums.

This is a tough one... I'm assuming you were not using Apple's "Photo Stream" and since you have no backup of your data, you may have to rely on a third party application to get the photos back to your Mac or PC.

What you don't want to do..... Do not sync your phone to your new Mac or PC as that may wipe all the photos from the phone.

As I stated above you may be able to use a third party application that can copy your photos back to a Mac or PC. Most will copy music and videos but I'm less certain about the photos. Anyway, I suggest doing a Google search to see if you can find an application that will work.

Image Capture may let you copy the images from your iPhone to your Mac. It's in the Applications folder. Connect the phone by USB cable and start Image Capture. Any images you can download from the iPhone will appear in Image Capture. That's assuming you've at least got a Mac that runs.

Hi - sorry for your problem - the Apotop Wi-Reader has been discussed in the iPad Forums in several threads and I've had the device on my want list for several months - $84 on Amazon (a few reviews also HERE) - might want to check their website to see if a manual can be downloaded - I've not used the product but seems to be able to transfer files wirelessly and put them on attached storage cards - good luck and let us know your results! Dave
