I am trying to upgrade my iPhone to OS 4 but I get a message that says "There are purchased items on your iPhone that have not been transferred to your computer" and that I should transfer these before proceeding, but no where does it tell me how to do that and everything I have tried (drag and drop into the library, check for available downloads) doesn't work. Further, when I search things like "transfer purchased items" in the iTunes help, I get nothing that helps. BTW, my only purchases on my phone are the free downloads from Starbucks. I am not a novice so find this frustrating that I can't figure it out and there doesn't appear to be any instructions!
