I just purchased a MacBook Air and I'm trying to sync my music library from my iPhone 6 to the new Macbook and only music purchased from the iTunes Store shows up on the MacBook although I have lots of other albums on my phone?

    How did you get the non-iTunes Store-purchased music onto the iPhone in the first place? – nohillside Mar 10 '15 at 15:37
  • In the past, I've used findleydesigns.com/ipodaccess. It allows you to export the music in your iPhone, from there, you could manually add it back to the iTunes library. (Not 100% sure if it supports IOS8, or the newest version of OSX, but worth a shot. – level42 Mar 10 '15 at 18:21

iTunes does not sync non-purchased music (or movies or tv shows) from a device back to the computer. You will need third-party software on the computer, such as iExplorer, to complete this.

(I swear there was another question like this that has been answered before, but I couldn't find it.)
