Hard drive Crashed. How can I get my music off my iPhone back on my new hard drive?

I've done a few google searches on this matter and most of the posts are a year or two old now and didn't know if their was a better way to accomplish this.

So yeah pretty much my hard drive crapped out on me, so I bought and installed a new one now i'm looking for a way to copy the music on my iPhone on to my new hard drive. I haven't installed iTunes yet for fear that it will try to sync my phone and I will lose everything. I do have some music that I bought on itunes as far as the other 99% I obtained other ways.

So if you guys could help me out with this I would truly appreciate it.

I believe Senuti is a paid application that will do this
But there should be some free alternatives too

it's actually way simpler than the other suggestions...you should reinstall itunes, reauthorize the computer and then just transfer your purchases...if you are trying to transfer non itunes music this won't work however

for mac, i use both senuti (paid) and expod (free). can't help with windows.

edit. i think you can get a trial of senuti for the first 1000 files.

+1 I've also used exPod, it's super easy and you won't lose your tags either.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I'll do a bit of research on the programs you guys recommended and will probably attempt this tomorrow.

SharePod is a good free application, I particularly like that it will organize your music into artists and albums as well as rename the files based on their tag information rather than leaving them with the alphanumeric file names that the iTunes database uses.
