There are two ways of transferring music from your iPhone, iPod or even iPad back to your computer using CopyTrans.
Smart Backup to iTunes
First of all, start CopyTrans from the CopyTrans Control Center
Smart backup is the easy backup to automatically transfer iPod/iPhone contents back to iTunes in one click. CopyTrans “Smart Backup” automatically transfers all tracks, track information, artworks and playlists to iTunes. CopyTrans knows and decides what needs to be transferred, and it’s 100% safe and duplicate free.

- Your iTunes is empty, because:
- Some of your tracks are missing in iTunes, because:
- Your iTunes tracks/playlists are not up-to-date in iTunes, because:
