    Put in a blank DVD and in iTunes under one of the drop down menus is create iTunes backup. After a reformat, download iTunes, put in the DVD and it will restore your music, iPhone backups, etc.

    Thanks! I never knew this, but its not really ideal as I have like 30gb of apps/videos/music/ringtones/podcasts/movies/TV shows...
    Can you do the backup to an external hdd? I have a 250gb westerndigital hdd so that would be ideal! Also, would I be able to restore the backup onto another pc?

    I don't see that option in the menus? Was it taken out of the latest iTunes?
