    You need additional software to do that, it's not a feature in iTunes.
    I believe the program I used to do it was called something like iPod rip or iRip or whatever. Just google that and see what comes up. It costs money to get the full program, but they have a free trial you can use once or twice for free. If that's all you need then you're gravy

    is there something that can restore my old backup, not for the music but all my text messages and contacts, I managed to get them all back after a attempted jailbreak then lost em all when i finally unlocked?
