My computer with itunes crashed.  However I have all of my music files on my i phone.  How do I load them into the library on another computer

iPhone 4S

    1. Disable automatic syncing on connection:  iTunes Prefs > Devices > Disable

    2. Connect Phone

    3. Right-click device tab (left iTunes window border) and select "Transfer Purchases."  )Or, File > Transfer Purchases from iPod.)

    4. Right-click device again and select "Backup."


    Make sure the new computer is authorized and signed into your iTunes account.

    I have this problem but since the library doesn't recognize my iphone anymore and thinks it is associated with a different library, it won't let me back up the music files without deleting everything on the iphone first


    All this happened after a software update and I hadn't noticed it until I have a big discrepancy in the files in my iphpone and those on my pc. I tried transfer purchases but not everything was purchased from iTunes

    it seems to think the phone is associated with a different library and if i sync with this one it will delete the music and nothing will be on my phone.  There is also no transfer music option with the new itunes showing up.
