    Macbook stolen-how to ad music to iPhone without erasing..?
    I know it's not strictly 'hardware' but there was nowhere else I could find to post...

    Basically, my Macbook Pro was stolen over Christmas so I'm temporarily using an '08 Macbook. I have some music on this laptop that I want to transfer to my iPhone but when I connect the phone and check 'manually manage songs and videos' it asks me if I want to erase the phone's data. Obviously, with no backup, I'm not too keen on doing this, how can I just add some music?
    Thanks a lot,

    Yeah, when I do that it doesn't respond or highlight. I assumed that this was because it wasn't synced...

    That's a free program that sends iphone/ipod songs to your itunes, but since it's the free version, you are limited to the amount of songs transfer. There are also other programs that cost money and transfer an unlimited amount. I don't know of a good one for $$ because I don't think they are worth it.
