iphone eddy Level 1 Level 1
Bought an iphone (3gs 16gb) yesterday and downloaded itunes to laptop.
Added a couple of cds to itunes and connected iphone to laptop, iphone appeared in itunes and synced with itunes, bookmarks sent to iphone but no music (ipod showing 'no content')
Purchased a couple of songs from itunes store via iphone (ipod now has content) connect iphone to laptop again, synced with itunes and the songs I purchased transfer to laptop ok but disappear from iphone (ipod showing 'no content')
Purchased a song from itunes store via laptop, connect iphone to laptop again, iphone syncs but again no music is sent to iphone (still 'no content' in ipod)..

This is my first iphone/ipod and the first time I have used itunes so I could well be making a basic mistake.
Any help appreciated.

    Connect your phone, itunes running, do not sync. Go up to Store>Authorize this Computer. See if you can sync itunes content now.

    As far as I can see my computer is authorised, in my account in itunes it says 'one machine is authorised to play content purchased with this account'
