Can iPhone be used like a hard drive (need to get music off it).

Is there an easy way to move the music off my wife's iPhone 4 to her iTunes account? All the music, not just what she purchased?

Wife's computer crashed. She had a friend look at it and only way he could get it back was to do a clean wipe and reinstall windows. All good now, but when she connects her iPhone, it sees the "new" iTunes and wants to replace everything on her phone with what is in iTunes (which is nothing, since she lost it all).

Going thru the various sites, it seems it is pretty easy to get the stuff she bought back, but not the stuff ripped from CD's etc. Just treating the phone as a drive, I can see the photos, but not the music.

Suggestions? Help?

If you have an Apple store near by I think they can do a backup of your iPhone which can then be synced to your new account.

Google sharepod, it's a cheap program that will help get your data from the phone

I've used sharepod for several years. There may be some other options too.

This is clearly a troll post. Nothing could possibly go wrong with your Apple hardware. This sounds like some sort of buttfuck windows problem.

? Her phone is fine. And far as I know there was nothing wrong with Windows. She got some serious crap (spam and crap) on there. I tried cleaning up myself, but none of my usual (and simple) stuff worked. So her friend did a clean install. Not sure this is technically a Windows issue.
