Hey, I have an iPhone 3G synced to a dead computer. I have a different computer running Snow Leopard that I want to use to pull the photos off the phone (and, ideally, add/remove music). iTunes keeps you from doing this by making sure the phone can only sync with one library at a time. I'm aware there are a couple logistical options for recovering the data, but my question is OS X-centric:
How do I force OS X to recognize the iPhone as a drive when it's connected?
iTunes or some related service is keeping the system from mounting the drive. i.e. if I were to plug the phone into a Windows or Linux machine, the phone would show as a removable disk and I could browse the folder containing the photos. What is the process running that is responsible, and is there a way around it?
