Dosnt ITunes sync your music ? If you are having trouble with ITunes not syncing your IPOD, follow the steps below.

Ok so first download the latest version of I tunes, Then connect your IPOD to your computer, BUT DO NOT RUN ITUNES, this will be done at the end. then go to your "my computer" icon and open it.When you open up the "my computer" window, at the top bar, select "tools" and then go down to "folder options", a new window will pop up, click on the "view" tab, you will see some options pop up in the window, under "hidden files and folders" click on "show hidden files and folders. and "apply" and then "ok". Go back to the "my computer window", you Ipod should show up as a mass storage device drive, double click on it and you will see all the folders on your ipod. The "hidden folders" will display in a washed our color format. If I remember correctly, I think the folder the music is under is named something like "ipod_cache" open it up and there will be a folder in there marked "music", when you open that folder, the folders inside of it are labeled like "F01, F02, etc..." transfer those folders somewhere on your computer. After thats done, you can drop the music from each folder into ITunes and there you go..... If you need more details, let me know.

I never tried on an IPhone Capt, but don't see why it wouldn't, you are pretty much making your computer recognize your device as a external USB hard drive or storage media.
