I have an iPhone 4 and just just downloaded iTunes on my computer. I wanted to save all my music to my iTunes so i could later transfer it but i synced it and all my music was deleted. Is there any way i could get it back?

I have all my music on another iTunes on another computer but that computer is now broken.

  • I can't remember if a 4 has the capability, but did you have iCloud backup enabled? If so restore from there, then research 3rd party apps that help you copy in that direction. – Tyson May 1 '15 at 16:45
  • I doubt iCloud keeps music backups. My cloud backup usage is 823MB - yet I have several GB of music on my phone – Tetsujin May 1 '15 at 16:47

iTunes is the Master, the phone is the Slave.

Music only transfers one way, from iTunes to the phone [aside from iTunes Match or music purchased from iTunes Store].

I'm afraid, unless you had a backup somewhere, the music's gone.

Re: your edit. That's your backup, then. You need to see if you can get the data off the old drive.

  • There're tons of apps that copy music from iPhone to computer (syncios.com for example) – Matte.Car May 1 '15 at 18:15

No, it's too late. You can't recover music from iPhone...

  • this answer, while true, really is too incomplete. Honestly you should edit or delete... this is going to attract down votes. – Tyson May 1 '15 at 16:42
