My iphone4s was synced to my windows based computer but my computer was fried due to Hurricane Sandy and now I can't sync my phone to my new computer.

I guess the phone is looking for my old hard drive.

Any thoughts? Thanx

If its beyond repair, try using iExplorer to rip everything off of your iPhone and restore to a new iPhone and put everything you've ripped off of your iPhone back in

"... restore to a new iPhone..."? I don't understand. I only have one iPhone. That's the 4s. I don't want the 5 as of this time.

Ah ha! Gotcha! Understood and thanks.
Just be sure you use iExplorer, as willerz suggested above, before restoring as a "New device." iExplorer will give you root access to your iPhone and allow you to pull pics, ringtones, music, contacts, etc. from it and allow you to drop it into iTunes on another computer.
