    My great (but old-ish) G4 PowerBook recently experienced a corrupted hard drive, and I had to get a new one to replace it via the Apple repair site at the University of Virginia Bookstore. Some of my old files were able to be recovered, but many were not, and none of my extensive music and video files, most from iTunes, made it. Before losing my system, however, I had re-synched it with my wonderful iPhone, and that is fine. I thought that was like backing up my music, and I did this periodically...
    Can you help me to get my iPhone contents back on to my now-repaired PowerBook? I am not very tech-savy.

    iPhones and iPods et al are really designed by Apple to go one way with transfers - computer to device - in an effort to clamp down on music pirating.

    That being said, there are options out there vis-a-vis programs that will transfer files the other way.

    This one will do what you're looking for:
