    try using senuti to rip the songs off the iphone, i haven't used it so i can't review it or anything, but it's supposed to be able to rip songs off an ipod. Don't know if it works for an iphone or not, but it is free

    Well if you could load stuff back on to iTunes using your iPhone what's to stop you from doing the same with other people's iPhones? It's just copyright protection on Apple's part, it may get in the way but they also offer Time Machine and plenty of other 3rd party software for backup. I myself have 3 back ups of my iTunes libraries.

    Not I. Have you checked out if Senuti worked for you?

    seems to have worked

    It looks like it woked but added three duplicates of each of the songs...I have also read that if I sync now it will delete all my songs off my Iphone. does that mean I can never sync my Iphone with my music??? any body else used senuti? that can help

    Senuti has nothing to do with syncing to your iPhone/iPod. Once you have your songs in your iTunes library, iTunes is responsible for syncing. And yes, if you sync your iPhone with what's really a new library, iTunes will replace the songs on your iPhone. But if you managed to get everything off it'll just end up the same.

    As for the duplicates - I haven't used the latest Senuti (I haven't had to get music off my iPhone) so I don't know about the result - but you can just use the iTunes option to search for duplicates and delete the ones you don't want. Back up the library first, though.

    here is the thing....when I accidently ditched my original Itunes folder...all the song titles remained in itunes..when I clicked on one...it said "can't find the file do you want to look for it...When I used senuti it added two additional duplicate songs. If I click on the original it plays..If I delete the two senuti songs it gives the error message again.:confused:
