    iPhone not recognized by iTunes after HD replacement
    Hey guys
    Recently my Seagate hard drive died (luckily I had my stuff backed up), so I got a replacement drive and then did a fresh install of SL, and then migrate data off my external back-up onto my new replacement drive. I imported my iTunes app and data through migration assistant. I did this rather than a system restore because this process has caused problems in the past, and plus I wanted to clean up my Mac really good. It feels brand new right now.

    But anyway here's the problem: I plug in my iPhone, and iPhoto opens (I have it set up like this) but iTunes does not give any indication of my iPhone as a device. I even signed into iTunes with my Apple ID. No luck.

    Any ideas what I can do here? I really don't wanna delete everything on my iPhone and then re-sync it from scratch :/
    One thing I've noticed is that I somehow don't have my old iPhone backups on my new drive- should I try to find those on my backup and transfer them to my new drive?

    Thanks in advance!
