Hello, a long time ago I uploaded all of my CDs (ggod music anyway) to my iphone. I did this via itunes on a laptop, which is long gone (the laptop is kaput).
In the meantime I have purchased lots of music on the phone. The phone is filling up, so I want to sync up with a laptop again to manage/delete the songs.
But every time I connect the phone to itunes and try to sync I get a message along the lines of "you may lose any songs you have purchased" i.e., it seems to want to sync the phone with the laptop, not the other way around. In other words, if I sync with an empty itunes it will empty my phone and I'll lose all the music, purchased and ripped from my cds.
What is the proper way to regain sync and control of an iphone full of music?
