If you have purchased music through the iTunes WiFi store and want to transfer it back to iTunes: right-click on the iPhone in the source column of iTunes and click on "sync back".

If you have inadvertently deleted music in iTunes and want it to transfer back from the iPhone: it is possible, I've no idea how to do it, but I'm sure someone around here can help.

that shouldn't be a problem. in the settings you can select to sync calendars, addresses and the like back to the computer. to transfer your pics, just open iphoto and it'll pull your photos off of it.

not sure about the music tho. if you've bought it thru itunes, and you activate your computer, it'll pull it off. but if you ripped it or d/l'ed it yourself, you'll have a harder time.

If all of your stuff on your iphone is purchased ,,, in iTunes go to

Store and authorize the pc you are on.
after that go to File transfer purchases from iPhone

I am hoping someone can give me some advise on this.

I have about 80 applications on my iPhone, however, for some reason, on iTunes, it only lists 2 of these apps. As I have just transferred to this computer, I am not surprised that the apps aren't listed, just not sure why 2 of them are!

Anyway, to get to the crux of the problem, I have authorised this new computer and with the iPhone connect, selected the transfer pruchases option. This starts to work and in the status bar, indicates that it is copying each app in an alphabetical order, however, when it gets to the last one it just stops. When I look in the iTunes Applications folder, it is still just these 2 applications (the first 2 I ever bought if that makes any odds).

I have tried deleting 4 of the apps that the transfer purchases seems to bomb out at, however, this just makes it bomb out at whatever is last in the list alphabetically now.

Has anyone come across this? How did you resolve the issue?

Thanks,
Gary.

I feel like a broken record cause I suggest this all the time, but SharePod is a great utility for copying music to/from a iPod/iPhone. Oh, and it's free.

But expod only works for iPods! Not iPhones.

Sorry. I was trying to use it for ringtones on an iPhone, and that didn't work. You're right, it works for music on iPhones

And it also works for ringtones. I just checked and my ringtones were there along with my music.

That's funny, it didn't for me. It didn't pick up the .m4r files I have on my iPhone. I'll fiddle around with the settings, and see if it is me.

I hate short cuts on my computer, and didn't realize that by deleting iTunes, I deleted the WHOLE library, 1,586 songs to be exact. Yes, laugh, but I just want to say thank you so much, the website helped, it's only free for 100 songs, but the $25 fee is so worth it!! I have been afraid to sync my phone for months. So, to all you shortcut crazies out there like me, this software is a life saver.

PS. I also wanted to say that I APPRECIATE people who make apps to HELP others without requiring them to PAY for it. The simple fact that many people are forced to pay for something they should already have the freedom to do with their device reflects poorly upon Apple.

It is very good, though.

Wink Easily move pics from iphones to pc!!!

HERE'S THE STRAIGHT DOPE!!!

When your iTunes keeps automatically starting after you plug in you iPhone, you have to turn iTunes off and then unplug and plug in you iPhone. iTunes should again automatically start and, if you didn't before, you should get the window that allows you to view your iPhone as an external harddrive to view what's stored on it...

If this fails, KEEP TRYING CUZ IT'S THE ONLY WAY AND SHOULD WORK!!!

AND YOU NEVER HAVE TO DOWNLOAD ANYTHING TO MAKE THIS WORK!!!!

Might Already Have Worked it out.... but

How can i transfer music from my iphone to my itunes on my pc??

When in Itunes and phone plugged in right click on Iphone icon and select "Transfer Purchases".This will move to a dedicated folder referring to purchases from IPhone and you can move from there into Library.

Hope this helps
