    I Had to replace a hard drive on my windows computer and I had to remove all my music I had on my computer and iTunes refuses to allow me to music new music on my IPhone 6 unless I let it remove all my media and I don't want to do that.
    Does anybody know a free program that I can use to transfer my music from the IPhone 6 to my computer because I checked out some programs and all they offered was a 7 day free trial and it only let you transfer 10 music tracks per day and that would take too long and the free trial be over with by the time I started transfer my music

    Hi, welcome to iMore.

    Please see http://m.imore.com/apple-music-faq if signing up to music will let you upload your current songs on the iPhone to Music after which you will be able to download it back to your computer.

    First all I don't know what program to use that is free.
    Second I am not apart of Apple Music because I can't afford to buy music from that service

    No worries, music has a 3 month free trial which you can unsubscribe off within that period. You will not be charged.

    That's why it should upload your music 'as is' to your Music account, once created, so you can download it free of DRM.

    Enable iCloud Music Library on your iPhone, subscribe to the free trial of Music, wait for your iPhone to upload all songs to iCloud, open iTunes on your computer, enable iCloud Music Library and Music in iTunes, wait for all the songs from your iPhone to appear in iTunes and download the songs for offline use in iTunes.

    See the FAQ that I referred to a few posts back.

    Still looking for a program to do this and I thought I found one but you had to pay and it's a ripoff to have to pay 19.99 to be able to transfer your music from your phone to your computer

    You can't do it for free. You need to load it from the original source or pay for a program to do it.

    As SwitchBeach said, you can't do it for free. Your only alternatives is to pay for software or try what Tartarue suggested.

    As a fairly new iPhone user (little over a year), I learned the hard way too. I ended up adding all of my music to a special folder on my hard drive and using that as my original source for getting my music on to my phone via iTunes. Once done it's easy peazy lemon squeezy from there.

    Well I can't pay to use any program at all and I don't see why I have to pay to transfer my music that makes no sense at all

    The 3 month trial I suggested is without any restrictions and ultimately, is free of charge.

    You're preaching to the choir here. I get it because I was beyond annoyed when I figured this out after dropping cash up front to pay for a new iPhone after ditching Android. But unfortunately it is what it is. I had over 4k songs and had to start completely over.
