    Default Backup music from iPhone to iTunes,Need help!

    I originally snyc'd my music to my iphone from itunes on my old computer (now crashed and trashed). When I try to sync the music from the iphone to the new computer and new itumes it says that "all items (including music) will be erased" because I can only sync to only one itunes. Since I no longer have the itunes from my old computer, what can I do?

    It's the wrong time to point this out - but you should have had a better backup strategy for your data - your computer crashing is no excuse. Backup is everyone's responsibility.

    Apple does not allow transfer of music from iPhone back to iTunes as this is generally used to pirate music.

    There are third party apps that can copy your music from your iPhone back to your computer. You haven't specified whether you use mac or windows. I have previously recommend free apps on both mac and windows, do some searching. If you decide to pay for an app to do this - be sure to use an app from an established legitimate developer. There are a lot of scam apps that claim to recover your music and free your iPod/iPhone but mostly they are junk and useless.

    Also if you purchased your music from iTunes store - you can ask Apple to allow you to re-download these purchased tracks (this is a once in a lifetime only offer, so get a backup strategy organised now!!!)
