I just got a Samsung galaxy note 3 after years of being shackled by iPhone -- don't know why I didn't leave Apple earlier. Only problem I have is I cannot get my music off iPhone and unto Note 3 (or even better still, just onto my PC -- Yes I do know about iTunes but can't get the iTunes music off iTunes/iPhone.
Is it actually possible to rip my music out of my iPhone and onto my PC (ideally in mp3 or other usable format) so I can load the music onto my Samsung note 3.

There used to be software about a few years ago (non apple software) that ripped the music off but Apple seem to have scoured the net and stopped this.
I'd be very grateful for some help here. You can post here or send me an email. Cheers.

You can't find your iTunes folder and copy and paste the music folder?

It's all in your iTunes folder but make sure you only copy the music and not all the rest (album art, etc.) otherwise you will wasting a lot of space with files your Note cannot handle.

Good luck

Have a search for iFunbox. This program should do what you need.... Although, I'm not sure if, or how you can play DRM protected music on your non-apple phone.

You can't extract music from a device through iTunes anyway.

I remember with an iPod you used to be able to hook it up to a pc, show hidden files and find a ton of folders with weirdly named .mp3's. All you had to do was copy them and rename them. Does this not still work on an iPhone?

You can try to use Sharepod, but it will require iTunes 10.0 or higher to be open. This because Apple scrambles the filenames.

Hey,

Use iTools. You can sync both ways using iTools. I stopped using iTunes after my friend showed me iTools.

It can transfer all your songs from iPhone to PC/Mac.

I used to use this when I wanted to get the music out of my iPod into my Mac: https://www.fadingred.com/senuti/

But scouring around the internet I found that this may work too: http://www.getsharepod.com/

They are both shareware -.- , but they work with iPhones and on the latest firmware. Try and exploit the free trial or try another route
