Iíve learned a few things about iPhone recently.
Those cables, the 30 PIN to USB connectors between an iPhone and an USB port make a difference if they are not Apple. Hard to believe but I went through holy heck with cheap cables I bought off eBay these past two weeks.
Now that I have an awareness of Operating System and Apple Firmware (iPhone1,2_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw) and how to restore, I can rephrase my question: Where is the ďbackupĒ of an iPhone? I have a complete backup of my hard drive from the old notebook before I migrated to a new computer. I just want that backup.
