    Ok, so I am running a iPhone 4 jailbroken with Greenpoison on a 2011 MBP 15".

    I want to take the music off my phone to add to my new MBP.

    I've tried Senuti, expod, and syncpod.

    Sentui does not detect my iPhone even after installing the iPhone extensions, expos just locks up and I have to force quit, syncope does not detect the iPhone.

    Anyone have any other options. Preferably free?

    Thanks.

    If your music has been purchased from iTunes, use the "transfer purchases" option in iTunes.

    My music is a mix of purchased on itunes, purchased elsewhere (like Amazon), and ripped from CD.

    My total library is on the hard drive of my Windows laptop.

    I just want the music that's on my iPhone on my new Mac. When I try to sync iTunes it wants to replace what's in the iTunes Library on the iPhone (1000+ songs) with what's on the Mac (which is only 2 songs).

    Yup, unless I'm mistaken, thats what sync (synchronize) means.
    Use an external, or thumb drive, and copy it from the PC.

    Try http://www.macroplant.com/iphoneexplorer/ yet? There's also the iPhone Browser - the former is nice because it works on non-jailbroken devices (not an issue you have, I know, but still a nice thing about it :) )

    Music Rescue and Share Pod work great. Theyre free but Im on Windows so much sure if theyre compatible with Mac.
