Can not copy any songs from iPhone to itunes

November 18, 2011 at 22:46:46
Specs: Windows XP
I am experiencing trouble with my iPhone. I have to reinstalled my

Windows 7 OS due to some trouble. When I reinstalled everything include

iTunes back, it can not automatically back up my iPhone to iTunes like

it used to. Also, I can not copy any songs and/or videos from iPhone to

my iTunes.

Does anyone know how could I restore all my previous services I got

before the reinstallation? Help!!
Very thanks.

It's because you blew away the association between your phone and computer. You can't just walk up to any computer to synch your phone, and when you reinstall the OS you start over.
There are a few tools that can rescue your songs. I assume you didn't back up any of your songs, before you reinstalled your OS, right? So your music is on the phone only.
When I had a disk crash a few years ago, I used ipodrip to restore. It worked. Now I do regular backups. Consider doing that.
If you do not understand what I've just said, let us know How to transfer music from iPhone to iTunes easily.
Hope this works for you.

You can only sync an ipod with 1 install of itunes at a time. I assume iphones work the same.
Meaning when you reinstall windows you have to resync from scratch which will wipe your device.
I might be wrong, but that is definately the design for ipods. Its to curb piracy.
