Ever since upgrading to 8.1.2 from 8.0, it won't sync. PC comes up and recognizes that a USB device is attached, and asks me to select the way it will be used (open with explorer, photo manager, etc.). It did NOT do this before. I tried Apple knowledge base solutions but no luck. Uninstalled Itunes, cleaned out installation files, got rid of mobile manager files, deleted drivers. deleted directories, etc all as per their instructions for this project, and then did an iTunes reinstall. No dice - iTunes still won't see the device, but will Windows still does.
Anyone have an idea how to do a hard-reset on the iPhone itself? Maybe that would work. I have a recent backup on iTunes that I could use to get it going again

Are you trying to sync your iPhone using the cable or over WiFi? I discovered that after upgrading iTunes, I had to physically connect my iPhone to the computer with the USB cable and force a sync with it the first couple of times. After that, it seemed to then be able to sync over WiFi OK.
Yes, just plug in the iPhone into the computer via USB that you have the iTunes on and you sync it by clicking "sync" and a message will pop up asking if you want to transfer your purchases to your library and at that point you click "yes".
When it comes to uploading photos to iPad, iTunes is always regarded as a good choice for many iPad users. As an official and free data transfer tool, iTunes can help users to sync photos from computer to iPad. The following guidance is about how to copy photos to iPad with iTunes.
Plug iPad into computer with the USB cable. iTunes will automatically launch, if not, you need to manually start it on your computer.
Click the name of the iPad in the left sidebar, and then click "Photos" in the right part of the window.
Click "Sync Photo from" and check "Choose Folder", and then choose the photos from your computer.
Click "Apply" at the right bottom of iTunes window. iTunes will then start syncing the photos from computer to your iPad. If you haven't enabled auto sync of iTunes on your computer, just go to Edit > Preferences > Devices, and uncheck "Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically".
Since you are using the older version of iTunes, many things will not work, and soon enough, you wont be able to use the iTunes Store at all. You should be able to sync with your iPhone 3G (as long as you previously have synced on that computer with your iPhone and did not restore/reformat) You will be prompted to restore and that is when you click cancel as it will delete your good's on your iPhone).
Your best bet, is to upgrade. (iTunes 10.1 is out now.)
The trick is to click on the picture of your iPhone inside iTunes. Go to the Ringtones folder and tell it to sync the ringtones directory. Now anything placed in the Ringtones folder will be moved over.

if you you use realplayer you can import all the files off of it. as far is i know this only works with music files not video or music that are non plus. make sure that when you import the files that you are importing as mp3.
