How do you transfer music from iPod/iPhone to a new laptop. Please read details

my laptop died, I got a new laptop but when I try to sync new music from the new laptop iTunes it wants to delete everything currently on my phone and since all my older songs are stuck in dead laptop I'll lose them once I sync with new laptop. I've transferred the purchased songs but can't transfer the downloads, rips from cds. I used a program pod to pc once before but now it doesn't work. any other similar programs??

All your songs should be backed up in your itunes acvount, right? So you authorize your new computer for itune through your 'my account' page of itunes and resync everything from itunes to new laptop then from that to iphone.

I did authorize the acct on the new laptop, all the app and contacts transferred over but not the music and I hate like hell to re-download all that music. Can't believe there's no a simpler way!

you cant unless you have newly purchased songs on the ipod/iphone, but it will delete everything that wont be on your laptop.
