Do you have them on another computer or disk that you can copy onto the newly reinstalled computer? If you are asking if there is a way to pull them off the phone and put them on the phone then you need to get hold of a program such as Tansee iPhone Transfer. It is not free but it allows you to pull music, videos, etc.. off your phone.

When you sync your phone on iTunes, it saves a backup file. You can import that backup file into your new iTunes (it should still be there?)

do you see the file?

If he reinstalled Windows there wont be any backup files on his hard drive. They will have been wiped during the format and installation phaze.

The album covers are easy, just hilight all songs, right click and "get album covers" iTunes will get them. Also same with getting your purchased music. Right click and you can get all the music that you have purchased.

Once you have the music on your computer and showing in iTunes you can select the Advanced menu and select Get Album Artwork and it should go online and get most, if not all, the artwork for you.
