How do I Transfer songs from my iTunes library, without losing all the songs already on my iPhone?

I have an apple iPhone 3G, and got some songs from youtube to mp3 into my iTunes library. I don't want to lose all the songs already on my playlist even though I want to sync the songs to my iPhone. Also, it won't let me drag the songs to the little iPhone icon.
Basically, tell me step-by-step what I have to do.
Explain like I'm 5.
Thanks!

  • How can I remove songs from my itunes library without losing them...

    ... on my ipod. My hard drive is full and I was wondering if there was a way to only sync new music and delete old music from my library. Thanks.

    You simply have to change the update option of your iPod to "manually manage music and videos". You can get details here: Managing content manually on iPod
    One major word of caution. If you delete songs from your PC and have no back up other than the iPod you will risk losing them permanently if your iPod fails or you find you have to restore it to solve a problem. You should consider investing in an additional internal or external hard drive to store/back up your music. Alternatively at the very least back up songs you can't replace such as iTunes downloads to CD or DVD. Forum member Buegie has compiled a very extensive procedure for backing up your music which you'll find at this link: Backing up iTunes
    Something else to be aware of when using an iPod in manual mode is that the "Do Not Disconnect" message will remain on the display until you physically eject the device. In that case use Safely Remove Hardware icon in the Windows system tray on your desktop or check this link: Safely Disconnect IPod

  • HT1459 how do I sync from my ipod to an empty itunes library without loosing all the songs on the ipod

    I have had to change my computer and lost all my itunes libraries/
    I still have them on my ipod/
    is ther a way to sync all from ipod to computer
    Thanks Ruth

    Sync is only oneway, from PC to your device.  Unless you have the music on your PC, iTunes is going to wipe out what you have on your device if you are syncing to a new library.
    You can only transfer Purchased music over to Itunes on your PC.

    As for you own music, you may have to use a third party software.  A good Free one is called Sharepod which you can download from Download.com here:

  • How can I transfer apps from one iTunes library to another?

    How can I transfer apps from one iTunes library to another? My daughter has an iTouch, and I was managing it through my library. I have created an iTunes account for her, with a new iTouch, and would like to move the apps over. I tried to sync the old iTouch to the new library and it said it was already set up to sync with a different library. What is the best way to do this?

    You can transfer iTunes purchases by:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer
    To make the new computer the syncing computer you have to:
    - Transfer iTunes purchases lIke I described above
    - Make a backup of the iPod on that computer by connecting the iPod and then right-clicking on the iPod under Devices in iTunes and selecting Back Up.
    - Restore the iPOd from that backup
    She will have to continue to use your iTunes ID to update the apps prchased with your account. To use her account she will have to log into the computer with her account (iTunes>Store) and change the sign in on the iPod by going to Settings>Store.

  • I am trying to delete a large number of songs from my Itunes library without having to delete them one at a time.  How do I do that?

    I am trying to delete a large number of songs from my itunes library without having to do it one at a time.  How can I do this.  All of my songs have check marks by them.  Help!

    Then I suspect you do not have iTunes Match enabled. Using that "delete all" command in the Settings does not remove the music from the cloud, nor does it disable iTunes Match. With iTunes Match enabled you will still see all the music.
    So go to Settings > iTunes and App Store and make sure iTunes Match is set to ON (green).

  • How do I transfer music from my itunes library  to my wife's on the same computer?

    How do I transfer music from my itunes library to my wife's on the same computer? I am trying to put the music that is on my phone on her phone.

    Has she transferred iTunes content to her iPhone from an iTunes library on another computer or from a different iTunes library on the same computer?
    If not, you transfer music to her iPhone from your iTunes library in the same way the music was transferred to your iPhone. If she has any iTunes content on her iPhone that was transferred from a different iTunes library, all iTunes content on her iPhone will be erased first.

  • How do I permanently delte purchased songs from my iTunes library without Match?

    How do I permanently delte purchased songs from my iTunes library without Match? iTunes is automatically syncing songs I purchased years ago to my iPhone without me asking it to. I have not and am not going to pay for Match. I want to get of of these songs for good. I do not care about removing them from my history which is impossible, I just want to delete songs so they are not in my library and do not sync to my phone since I never wanted them there.

    Hey Dodge50,
    Great question! You can choose to sync your entire library, or selected playlists and other items. For more information, check out this resource:
    Sync your iPhone, iPad and iPod with iTunes using USB - Apple Support
    http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT1386
    You can also opt to manually manage the content that is on your device. For more information about this option, see the following:

  • I would like to copy all the songs from one Ipod into another. All the songs are into my Itunes account, I tried to drag and drop the songs from the old Ipod to the new one but it doesn't work. Is there a way to do it ?

    Hello everybody,
    I would like to copy all the songs from one Ipod into another. All the songs are into my Itunes account, I tried to drag and drop the songs from the old Ipod to the new one but it doesn't work. Is there a way to do it ?
    I share one Itunes account with other people from my family and one person would like to keep the same songs on the new Ipod as the ones which were on the old one.
    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Hello Chris,
    Thanks for your answer. I was hoping for an easier answer. Too bad there is no drag and drop solution, it would have been much easier.
    Thanks for answering so fast.
    Bye.

  • HT3819 I just bought my kids iPods.  How can we share music from my iTunes library without crossing over with text messages, etc?

    I just bought my 3 kids iPods.  How can we share music from my iTunes library without crossing over with texts, apps, etc? 

    Create new IDs for each by:
    Create a NEW account using these instructions. Make sure you follow the instructions. Many do not and if you do not you will not get the None option. You must use an email address that you have not used with Apple before.
    Creating an iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore, and Mac App Store account without a credit card
    Use that Id only for:
    - Settings>Messages>Send and receive and sign out your ID and sign into the new one. Make sure that only that ID email address is listed.
    - Settings>FaceTime sign out of your ID and sign into the new . Make sure that under You can be reached at only the new ID email address is listed
    - Settings>iCloud and sign out and sign in with the new one
    Continue to the one one common ID for Settings>iTunes and App stores. That is what controls purchases.

  • I have all my music on an external hard drive. I just transferred all my files to a new hard drive . How do I sync all my files with my itunes library without losing all my playlists etc and keep everything intact?

    I have all my music on an external hard drive. I just transferred all my files to a new hard drive . How do I sync all my files with my itunes library without losing all my playlists etc and keep everything intact?

    Launch iTunes with the Option key held down, click on Choose Library, and specify it. If the external drive doesn't contain the iTunes database files, create a new library there and import that music.
    If the library contains any rented movies, they won't play on a different computer.

  • HT4847 I changed my iPhone from an IPhone 4 to an iPhone 5. How do I delete my iCloud account on my old phone without losing all the data on my new iPhone 5?

    I changed my iPhone from an IPhone 4 to an iPhone 5. How do I delete my iCloud account on my old phone without losing all the data on my new iPhone 5?

    If you have any photo stream photos on your old phone that you want to keep you might want to save them to the camera roll, then import them to your computer (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083) before deleting the account.  The reason for this is that photo stream photos are only kept in iCloud for 30 days.  When you enable photo stream on your new phone you will only receive photo stream photos from the last 30 days as older photos are no longer in iCloud.

    I'd start with the following document, with one modification. At step 12 after typing GEARAspiWDM press the Enter/Return key once prior to clicking OK. (Pressing Return adds a carriage return in the field and is important.)

  • HT1848 how to I transfer music from my itunes library to my ipod?

    How do I transfer music from my itunes libraray to my ipod?

    If you have iTunes 11 on your computer then you can enable the left-hand sidebar via option-command-S on a Mac, control-S on a PC, which might make things easier. Then connect the iPod and select it on that left-hand sidebar, and then on the right-hand side of iTunes select the Music tab - you should then be able to select which of your music to sync to your iPod
