    Hi everyone, in need of some help here.

    I had the original iphone, but it was damaged so I upgraded to the 3gS. Upon buying it, I purchased about $200 worth of albums and some select singles. I got to my computer which housed my ITunes account with over 500 songs I had on my old Iphone.

    I synced the new iphone, and upon syncing it, all that happened was ITunes sucked all the albums from my phone, and all the songs I purchased except for one! I was simply trying to obtain my old music, much of it I purchased of course, and it seemed to backfire.

    Anyone have this happen or have any recommendations?

    Lost music files too... but not so many...

    The same happened to me!
    I just got my precious new 32 GB 3GS iPhone TODAY...
    I uploaded (synced) a few tracks to the phone... listened to them... everything worked well...
    Uploaded (synced) a video... worked fine...
    But now... all the music tracks are gone!!!
