    Why can't you back up your music? Unless you're willing to buy a 3rd party app to sync from the iPhone to the pc, you'll need to copy drives from your pc to your new laptop.

    the easiest way is to move everything over manually from computer to computer. you want to get the itunes database file as part of this

    doing it via the iphone is the hard way

    once everything is moved over you want to login to itunes, setup your sync options and it will ask you to remove everything off the iphone and resync.do this.

    The ultimate solution for syncing files is itunes. It is very easy to use and also user friendly. You may try once, and if you do not feel easy to use then you may try googling to get other syncing tools.
