This is how the iphone works.
You can sync/manage music with one and only one computer. If you sync/manage to another, it will erase the music from iphone and replace with music from the new computer.
Move the music from your other computer ( or your backup copy of the other computer) to the one you want to use.
You can transfer itunes purchases from the iphone:
Without syncing: File>Transfer Purchases
Thanks so much for your reply. Two follow-up questions. First: How do I move the music from the one computer to the other? Copy to an external hard drive? Second: Could I sync my iPhone to one computer just for music and to the other computer for other purposes (apps, Outlook calendar, etc.)? And related to that: If I sync to the "other" computer, will it erase ONLY music that I might have on the phone?
"Copy to an external hard drive?"
Yes, or dvd,cd, flash drive,etc. Where is your backup copy of your computer? It should have everything on it. You can use it to move everything.
"Second: Could I sync my iPhone to one computer just for music and to the other computer for other purposes (apps, Outlook calendar, etc.)? "
Hope it helps.
You can sync itunes content ( music/apps/vids/etc) with one computer and you can sync contacts/calendars to a different computer.
Hope this helps.
