Okay so my hard drive went out last night. :( I lost so many things... Anyway, this may seem like a dumb question but I wana ask before I sync. I have redownloaded iTunes. Now I want to sync my iPhone stuff to the iTunes since nothing is on iTunes anymore. When I sync with iTunes, will it delete everything on my phone or will it add the stuff on my phone to iTunes? I don't want to loose my stuff on my phone. Please let me know..
Thanks in advance.

Well, I tried to open iTunes with the iPhone and iTunes will not show or sync with the iPhone. What is up with that? The iTunes version I have is like 7.0.2.16

I would ask on the Apple support forums. Those guys will know if there is any hope for your lost music files.

Well, as of right now I can't even get iTunes to notice my phone. I try and sync like normal but my computer keeps reading my phone as a camera only. How do I get past this? I do in fact have all my songs backed up on a portal hard drive so if I have to readd them I will. But I have a few movies that will have to be reconverted tho.

You need to download and install iTunes 7.4.2.

It always recognized it as a camera so you can download any pics you've taken with the phone.

I think it will wipe everything off your phone. That's why I suggested you ask your question in the Apple Support forums on Apple.com.

Well I got it to work. It was connecting and disconnecting a lot so what i did was just unplug it and plug back in and lol it stopped disconnecting. I didn't loose anything but my songs, but I can easily readd them. This post can be deleted now!
