    I need help. A couple of weeks ago my computer crashed so all my music was lost. well I got a couple of songs back and I went to put it on my iphone. I highlighted it and drug it over but when I put it over my phones name a black circle with a line through it shows up and wont allow the music to transfer over. Does anyone one know how to fix this? I asked a tech at the apple store and he told me to restore my settings. If I do that I lose everything so that will be my last effort. I need help.

    You have to sync music to the iphone using playlists. You can't drag and drop like you can with ipods.

    Damn, I totally missed that. I absolutely hate having to sync my music through playlists. I'd rather drag and drop what I want. Looks like I've got something to do when I get home this afternoon.
