Transferring songs from my iPhone to someone else's
My friend recently purchased an iPhone 3G S, the same model I have. He wants to have a copy of my music on his phone, as he likes all my songs. My songs were ripped from CDs, NOT purchased through iTunes, so none of the songs should have DRM qualities attached.
When I start up iTunes (with my phone attached to hsi computer), click on the name of my phone, then click on the music tab, it asks me, "Are you sure you want to sync music? All music on this device will be replaced with your iTunes collection." Since he just started out on iTunes, his collection is basically empty. I want to copy the songs from MY iPhone to his iTunes library so that he can then synchronize his phone and get a copy of my songs. Is there any way to achieve this?
The way iTunes says that MY phone's songs will be replaced with his library is NOT what I consider syncing. Syncing is merging the data from two sources and creating an aggregate of all data, NOT taking that data from one source and moving it to the other source, overwriting that other source's data. Big thumbs down to Apple for this.
