    Not sure if this was a double post or not, but I'll explain again. It looks like your iPhone was recognized as a new device in iTunes. What you need to do is SSH into the phone, delete the current /var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control folder. Then look for the original that has likely been remaned something else, and rename is back to iTunes_Control. Then resync your phone again and your old stuff should pop up.

    The easiest is to restore and set it up as a new phone. Resync and voilą

    Haha, why do people always resort to restoring as the first action to be taken. Keep in mind his "voilą" also includes resyncing 12GB worth of music.

    It can take 5 mins to fix the problem, or 2 hours to restore and resync. Which is actually easier?
