IPhone does not (yet?) have a "disk" mode so that you can copy directly to it (like a USB mini-drive). You have to go through iTunes an sync your music library or selections from it. Put the music you want into iTunes and sync with the iPhone, simple.

I have a Windows computer with all my mp3 files. Is there a way to convert my music files to bypass iTunes?

You don't need to buy the songs again, you can just import them onto iTunes and when you connect your iPhone 5C you can synchronize the songs to your phone.

How can I pass the music from my ibookg4 to my iphone 4

Put all the music in your ibook g4 onto a flash drive. itunes might not support your ibook due to it being a mid 2005 model.

I would suggest putting the music on a newer computer that can run the latest version of itunes.

Once you do that i can connect your phone to the newer computer and sync the music from itunes to the iphone 4.

How to download music on a iphone 3g?

there are several ways you can download and put music on your iPhone 3G

1.-Purchase songs in iTunes directly on your iPhone (this will cost you money and require you to create an iTunes account,if you download apps, you already have one).

2.-Insert a CD into the computer you plug your iPhone to, open the CD with iTunes, and rip the contents of the disc into iTunes (iTunes has a tutorial for this if you need further information), sync your phone with your iTunes on the computer and the songs will be added to your song library in your phone.

3.-You can use a P2P (peer to peer) sharing program ex. Frostwire, Winamp, eMule, to download the songs onto your computer. Take note of what folder these downloaded songs are being sent to. In iTunes, select File>add folder to library, a window will open, select the file where the downloaded music is located, and iTunes will add it into the music library in iTunes. Sync your phone with iTunes and the downloaded songs will be added to the music library on your phone

I have a new laptop... I am trying to download music from my computer to my ipod. I think I am missing some kind software to make this happen.

If you do not have iTunes already downloaded onto your new laptop then you need to download it before you can put music from your computer onto your iPod.
Go to this link to download iTunes (free). Once it is downloaded, you have to import your music that's on your computer onto your iTunes. This will take a while if you have a lot of music.
After that is done, you will be able to plug your iPod into your laptop and iTunes should recognize it and from there you'll be able to put your music onto the iPod.
Remember though, after you format your iPod to a PC you cannot plug it into a Mac (or Mac then to a PC) to put music on it, as it is already formatted to one and if you want music from the other you will have to reformat it which causes you to lose all of your music currently on it.
Be sure that the computer you are formatting it to (PC or Mac) is the kind you will be using for music at all times.
I hope this helps :)

My computer hard drive failed and I have not yet backed up my ITUNES... how can I get my songs on my new computer

If the hard-drive has totally "failed", then reading from it will be impossible.

If your problem is that Windows does not "stat" or "run", but the disk-drive physically is OK, then it should be possible to connect the disk-drive to another computer, and copy the files onto the other computer, or to burn some CD/DVD disks.

Also, do a Google-search -- there is software that can "rip" the music off your iPod/iPhone back onto your computer.

I dont know how to put music or mp3 in my i phone??

to install games/apps:
Go to itunes store and on the side there is a button that says App Store. Click on this and there will be a whole range of apps. You can choose from games or fitness or heaps more! The are some for free and there are ones that cost money. To get one that costs money you will need a itunes voucher. To download a free or money one click the little button next to the app you want saying "get app". This will then go straight to your itunes library and will sync when u want it to.

to install music:
Create a new playist on itunes and name it iphone. Drag music files from your itunes libary into the iphone folder.

to put these onto your computer:
plug your iphone into your computor with the cord that was given with it. When your iphone shows up in the devices coloum click on it and in the bottom right hand corner there will be a button saying sync. Before clicking on it go to the music tab on your iphones page. Then click what playlist you want to install (in your case the iphone folder). The go back and click the sync button. Wait for your computor to sync all the things you want onto your iphone.

Repeat this everytime you want to download anything. U may not have to do the music thing.

Hope i helped..

How to put music on your iphone without using itunes

I would also like to use the iPhone without iTunes.
iTunes is one of the worst programs i' ve ever tried. It´s slow, big and way to complex. It feels like a mac ( totally unnecessary..:-)
I tried it when i bought my iPod Shuffle. Luckily i found a little program, that could do the job without iTunes.
I want my computer to find the iPhone as an USB disk and just copy paste the music.
