    I know there's a function in iTunes to overwrite the contents of the iPhone, but I don't think there's a reverse option. You might be stuck lad. Sorry.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    On my PC when I try to sync and more than 5% are changed (you can make the change to be any change) to alert you.

    I THINK at this point you can decide what you want to do, keep files from phone or PC.
