How do I transfer music from iPhone to iTunes?
I have iphone 5 and acer notebook. My itunes account was in the acer nootebook. The music library was in the itunes in acer as well as in the iphone 5. Now what has happened is that the windows in the acer has crashed and i had to format the acer's hard disk and all data of itunes in acer has gone. Also, I have bought an iphone 5s as well. Now the entire music library is in old iphone 5. How do i transfer all the music from iphone 5 to itunes in formatted acer, so that i can then transfer the music from acer to iphone 5s. Please help.

how to transfer music from iphone5 to itunes
You could take a backup of that iPhone 5 on your laptop through iTunes, then set up your iPhone 5S from that backup. Sorry if it's not much help, but that's probably the best you can do at the moment.
P.S. You should probably change the title of your thread. It's slightly misleading.

If you can't get it to backup or sync with iTunes without it erasing all of your music (which I'd be scared of, frankly, because it's happened to me before), then I'd go the safe route of using Music Rescue to retrieve the files. After that, you should be able to simply copy them into iTunes and then sync your new 5S to iTunes, thus restoring your music library to its original state.
The free version of Music Rescue should work fine, you'll just have to click a button every so often (it was every 50 songs last time I used it) to continue with the restoration. Here's a link...

Back in the day I used a program called sharepod to restore music from an iPhone to a new PC. Don't know if it still exists....
