With out your device connected open iTunes:Select EditSelect PreferencesCheck - Disable Automatic Syncing for iPhones and iPodsNext connect your deviceOnce the device icon appears right click the iconSelect Transfer PurchasesAfter it has transferred all purchases I recommend backing up your deviceYou should be able to sync all music, aps, etc. Unfortunately, with the way that things are set up with Apple you will only be able to initially save your iTunes/Apple purchased songs to the new computer. Any outside songs (from CDs etc) will not sync. Hopefully you have a back up of any non purchased songs.
No, I tried to explain that in my original message. I have only purchased one song. The rest were on a CD which I no longer have and this did not help me at all.
It is not a new computer. It is a computer that was restored after it crashed and the retrieval disks did not include the iTunes already on the computer so you are saying I have lost them all unless my phone is connected.
ok try this app.. http://www.getsharepod.com/
it is free and will allow you to copy your music from your iphone
Are u sure because it is very late here and I need to get to bed
yes i am sure.
here are the instructions for how to use it also.. http://www.getsharepod.com/help/copying.aspx
And how long will it take. I do not want to do it tonight. I have been wrestling with this for hours.
itunes wont let you bring in the non purchased music into your itunes but this third party app will
it all depends on how much music you have.
Several hundred songs
i wouldnt imagine it would take very long
I know it is not your fault, but this really, really stinks. And, I certainly cannot give Apple an A for this type of thing. MONEY, MONEY, MONEY!!
Yeah its them wanting to fight copywright and keep making that money in the itunes store
Can I wait until tomorrow when I have tried this before I click accept?
No worries.. it will work. You can click accept and still come back tomorrow and ask any follow up questions.
