    I had to reformat my hard drive a few weeks ago and consequently lost all of my songs. The music is still on my Iphone however. I've reinstalled itunes and have synced my phone with the new itunes but cannot figure out if and/or how to reload my song from the iphone onto itunes/my computer's hard drive.

    Please let me know if this is even possible and if it is, how to do it.

    Thanks in advance.

    if you have contents on your phone that you have purchased from iTunes (music, movies, apps, etc...) then wile in iTunes, go to File>scroll down to Transfer Purchases from iPod and all those songs from your iPhone should transfer over. but if you have contents on your phone that you ripped to itunes from your personal collection, that stuff won't transfer over.

    one last tip, any content that you have purchased from iTunes in the past can be re-downloaded by contacting apple support and explaining what happened,
