    Ok, so I today i got a new computer because my old one suddenly crashed and was unable to get it fixed. I had my iTunes and my iPhone backup and everything on there. Now with this new computer I dont have anything and i never backed up anything. So my question is, is it possible to transfer my iTunes library on my iPhone to my new computer?? Please help!!!:eek:

    1. Remove automatic syncing option in iTunes: Preferences > Devices > Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically = checked
    2. Hook up your device to iTunes
    3. Quickly cancel any sync operation if iTunes misbehaves
    4. Right click device name and select "Transfer Purchases"

    Good luck!

    I know what he meant. My second post is for his songs and movies. My first post is for everything else. :)

    I haven't used iPhone explorer a lot, so you should poke around in it to see if it lists your playlists.

    I use this program but it costs $20:

    If iPhone explorer lists your playlists then you can copy playlist by playlist, but you'd have to get rid of duplicates manually. Same thing with iRip.
