    I have an old 3G 8GB iPhone that has music on it that is NOT in my iTunes library. Is there any way to get these files into iTunes without making a cluster eff out of what I already have on there & on my 3Gs? Thanks in advance.

    SharePod will get the music from your old phone to your iTunes library and then you can sync it onto your new phone. It's free.

    Not quite sure how to take that. Lol
    I am here however comma I completely agree with what Europa said.
    I have used it to get music from an old iPhone into my iTunes account. Worked well.

    Another question. Once I get it all transferred into iTunes, how come it doesn't show up under the tab "Music" but only under "Recently Added" under the Playlist section?

    If I recall it is because you don't actually own those songs in the eyes of iTunes. There is a work around for it. Might try syncing those songs to your device and then unsyncing ( yes made that word up) them an seeing what happens. Also try moving them to the music area and or playing them.

    Aha. I think it let me move them to the music area. Now can I delete that playlist? Or will it delete all those songs?

    Try removing one song from that playlist and see what happens.

    Care to share? I could use something to much on while I wrestle with iTunes. I'm banging my head against the wall over here.

    This is going to take ages - it only transfers 10 files at a time without purchasing the premium program, lol.
