    Just bought a new macbook pro. My previous computer was a PC. Anyways when I connect my iphone to the itunes it wont sync any of my songs, etc. It keeps saying it will replace my phone with the itunes library, basically meaning everything will be erased.

    What should I do?

    Thanks

    As far as your music and pictures, I would suggest getting yourself an external hard drive. I never keep my music or pictures on the internal hdd. Mac or pc

    Sign into your itunes account on the new computer and play a song from your library. If you haven't added any to your library yet, do so then start from the beginning.

    connect your iphone to itunes then use "transfer purchases" to transfer songs and apps that you've bought. use something like expod for other songs.

    The easiest way to do this is to back up your iTunes library on your PC and then move it over to your new Mac. Then sync as usual.

    Go to your windows machine, look for your iTunes folder (usually on C:/users/<yourUsername>/Music/itunes) and copy it to your MBP (either by external hard drive or network), put it on <your User Home>/Music/itunes

    And it will sync like always.... ;)

    I use Senuti to transfer music and videos off my phone and onto my mac.

    It isn't freeware though.
