Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

IPhone restarts when trying to delete pictures after copying...

I have tried several different times to get all of the pictures off of my iPhone, and have had NO success. Hah hah.

I'll copy them all to my computer, and check the box that says "Delete from my device after copying..." (or something close to that, I guess), and after copying, it deletes ONE picture, and my phone restarts itself.

What am I doing wrong here?

Also, is there a way to delete an album of photos I have put on there through iTunes?

Thank you ahead of time for your help!

Here's a fix for a windows system, and here's one for a mac.
The trick is not to choose delete after copying, then open the folder with explorer, then delete the stored files, then sync the phone with the empty folder.
Same thing for the album in ITunes. Navigate to the folder where iTunes stores the photos, delete the photos, then sync the phone. see here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I had pinterest app before i delete it but i cant get app again.

Try downloading app from a different PC or smart phone, then try to access it from original computer/phone after you have set up new account. Original account is gone if you deleted so forget looking for it and all your pictures are gone unless you saved them on your PC or in the cloud. Good luck

How can I delete several pictures at once from my Iphone 5?

MOVE (not copy-option given after) moving pics into a filder. Give the folder a name and then delete folder. Easiest way I've found. Create the folder from the usual way you view your pics.

I can't reply on yahoo messenger on iPhone 4. It flips back to sign in

Try deleting the app and re-downloading it. If it still not works, restart your iPhone by pressing the central button and the upper right button at the same time. (The upper right button is the one you use to lock your iPhone or shut it down.) It is important to do it this way and not the traditional way you turn off your iPhone. If it persist, try making some space in the memory of your iPhone, like saving your pics at your PC and deleting them from your iPhone, or deleting apps that you don't really use, or deleting music you don't hear any more. Sometimes a full memory can do this type of problems. Hope it helps.

How to find deleted pictures on Iphone 4

Did you back up recently before you deleted the pictures? If so, simply recover from iTunes backup files as the solution above. If this didn't work for you, you may try professional data recovery tool to recover them. Actually no matter the data lost has been backed up or not, they are marked as "deleted" by the device's internal database when deleted but still stored in the database. Good luck!

Hi my iphone is not updating in itunes, its giving a network error halfway through update

You have not specified the exact error given, but there are several solutions that I have found work for this problem in general.

1. If you have recently created any Voice Memo recordings with the native iPhone app, save them to your computer manually in a folder (not in iTunes). Next delete them from your iPhone and from your itunes library. Now try syncing/updating again.

2. If the above doesn't work, try closing iTunes and reopening.

3. Restart iPhone, attempt sync.

I tried sending a large file via email on my iphone

Go into itunes and try syncing your phone. You may be able to move the email from the application. Otherwise delete your mail account, and re install it after backing it up with itunes so you don't lose the contacts. I have 2 of them and mine has done that before, my wifes never has. so it's a quirk, but it was the only way I could get mine running again, it shouldn't affect anything else, just re input the settings for the email account and you should be good to go

Im trying to use the stellar photo recovery program to get a deleted photo from my iphone. i've already installed the program..and my phone is plugged into the computer. how do i get it to work with my...

Unfortunately, you don't get anything back. This and many other companies to try sell us software that they claim will recover deleted files from the actual iPhone. What they are really doing is recovering deleted files from the hard drive on your computer where you may have transferred photos at one time. Short of somehow getting a raw disk image off of your iPhone there is no current way, to my knowledge, to actually recover anything directly from the iPhone. What you can do though is access the iTunes backups on your HDD in the form of *.mddata files. For your images you can just rename these to .jpg and any that are images will work as such. I have tried around 30 recovery applications, jailbroke my phone, mounted it with SSH as a network drive, and a plethora of other activities to no avail. Essentially, these companies are scamming us and using our ignorance to make money. There is hope if you have ever made a backup of your iPhone.
Good luck :)

4. Your problem should now be fixed.
