Question

I NEED HELP TERRIBLY ABOUT ITUNES

by evanrk18 / August 17, 2014 7:06 PM PDT

Last night I went to a concert, payed $500 to get in and when I got home I tried to upload the pictures to my computer. I decided to update my iPhone 4 first, and my laptop froze during the update so I naturally unplugged my iPhone from the laptop. Now the only thing my phone screen shows is telling me to plug it into iTunes, which I did. On iTunes it said to restore it (reset it to factory settings) and I am NOT losing those pictures. So my question is how do I get on my phone without deleting all of the data. (NOTE: I disabled iCloud) Thanks!

If the iPhone is showing plug into iTunes

I worry that your choice of updating before syncing PLUS you didn't sync with the iCloud means your choices may mean those photos are gone. What a harsh way to learn about backup, sync and updates.

I agree with bob on this and I too fear that you have to choose one your phone or your photographs as you are in such situation where nothing seem to working. I feel sorry for you.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
