I was trying to upgrade my phone to the next level so I could use icloud with it because I plan to get an iphone 5 and wanted to be able to have all my stuff on the new phone. When I tried to upgrade the phone a message pops up on the home computer and said if I continue the phone will lose all media? I had previously unsynced all photo albums except the camera roll. Now it will not even sync. It said I cannot back up to my computer. When I look at the itunes account it shows photos filling it almost completely. I have a c and d drive on my computer. I moved all the photos from c to d trying to make space and it didnt help.

I have a 3GS and the ios is 4.3.4.   I am trying to load the latest version so I can then get the icloud.
So plug the device into the computer and upgrade.
Are you getting a specific error message when trying to do this?
As for the message about the media disappearing, of course it will.  This is how iOS upgrades work.  The device is wiped and the newest version of iOS for the device is installed as a "new" device then the device is restored using the backup created prior to the upgrade.
All the content on the device should already exist in iTunes on the computer.
If you want to move your iTunes library to a different drive for capacity reasons, do the following:
Close iTunes
Copy or Move the ENTIRE iTunes folder from the C drive to the other drive.
While holding SHIFT launch iTunes.  iTunes will then prompt the user to select a library or create a new one.  Point iTunes to the new iTunes folder location.
