HI thanks for the reply, sorry it took so long but life just got busy.

I have an old Iphone 4 which has a playlist on that i want to copy onto my pc and then eventully on to another iphone.

I have tried to drag and drop , it would not allow this, i tried to import the playlist but the only option was to import it to my old phone.

Any help would be appreciated.

cheers E_N

See Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device if the tracks from the playlist, or indeed any other media on the device, is not already on your computer. See ImportDevicePlaylists for a script that can import playlists as longs as the relevant tracks are in the library.

Playlists are an ordered list of track IDs. If the tracks in the playlist on the device were put there by the same library you're using then the playlists gets rebuilt using the IDs, otherwise the script attempts to match up the tracks on the basis of matching properties, such as track name, number, artist, and so on. Perhaps there are discrepancies between the two sets of files. 😕
