    Good morning!!

    Need some assistance. I accidentally erased all the music off my iPhone last night!! I hadn't backed it up in a while (I know!! It won't happen again...). Somehow I lost all the music from iTunes as well, meaning when I plug my phone into iTunes I can't see any of the music or their playlists.

    However, I can see all the music is on my iPad when I connect that to iTunes. Is there a way to get the songs and their playlists from my iPad to my iPhone?

    All your songs are on the ipad in a hidden folder. Go to that folder and do a search for all music files (acc,mp3,etc) and copy them all to a new folder on your desktop. Then re add them to your itunes/iphone. Your playlists and ratings will be lost. If you want to keep them, it will probably need more work to recover those.

    Use some computer program like Diskaid, Funbox, or whatever. Some of them allow you to copy music from the device to your computer. Then just add them to your iPhone.
