My computer's hard drive broke down and I got it fixed. I now have no pictures, music or documents on my laptop. I had a USB key of several songs that I'd like to add to my iPhone but when I tried to put them on manually, iTunes wants to erase everything and add those ten songs. Is there a way I could add these songs without having to lose my data?

  • You need to expand this - is the hard drive just bare OSX. If so then iTunes is empty so what is it asking it can delete. – user151019 Apr 19 '16 at 15:39
  • In a similar situation, I used iExplorer first to save what was on my iPhone. Then let iTunes do its thing and then manually added my saved songs to iTunes and synced again. Sorry, It's been a while and I don't remember all the details however the main point I wanted to make was I was able to get everything off my iPhone first and saved separately from iTunes and in the end I didn't loose anything. So you might want to check it out first. Note: I'm just a satisfied customer and I have no other affiliation with Macroplant, the developer of iExplorer. – user3439894 Apr 19 '16 at 16:57
  • I'll try what user3439894 said, Mark, my lap top hard drive is bare. What Itunes wants to erase is my iPhone when I'm trying to add new songs. – Leslie Apr 20 '16 at 15:57
