    So, to spare you all a long-winded explanation, having gone through an SSD crash and now back to a new SSD, my music is all screwed up, in terms of iTunes libraries. HOWEVER, it is still in-tact on my iPhone.

    Is there any way to transfer an iPhone's music library (as a whole) to a computer? Being able to transfer it to something that iTunes can read is a plus, but not 100% necessary.

    I've searched around for programs that do it, but none of them are free...not really wanting to pay $30 for a program that I'm only going to use once or maybe twice.

    Worked great. Though it added a bunch of "00 -" s to a lot of tracks. Bah!

    Yea, I think that is the price you pay for it being free. Just delete all that crap and bloatware that came with it then smooth sailing from there...

    Previsouly in your ssd iTunes music folder, was the music displaying like you wanting to show up now? If no, then just copy all the songs from your iPhone to a folder in my music location in your computer, open up iTunes and drag and drop that folder into iTunes, iTunes will automatically arrange artworks and music very well.

    This is an old thread. Either the original poster has found the answer elsewhere or has moved on (last post was in May 2012). Therefore, this thread is closed.
