I originally sync'd my iPad to a PC with iTunes. I no longer have that PC. The PC I *do* have was used to sync a different device (an iPod Touch).
So now when I plug in the iPad to the new PC, it gives me the choice to set it up as a new iPad or restore from the backup of the iPod Touch.
Neither choice is workable for me, since there are photos on the iPad that only exist on this iPad and not anywhere else. AFAIK, both of those options will result in destruction of the locally stored data (photos, music, etc.) that was only backed up to a PC that no longer exists.
If I re-install iTunes on my PC, it will no longer have knowledge of the iPod Touch, correct? So then it will give me the choice of sync'ing with the existing iPad's data? I'm hoping that is the solution, but wanted to make sure before I proceed further. Don't care about the music and apps - just the photos and videos we want to save.
