Migrating iTunes Library from a Dead Mac

My Macbook died the other week, so I bought a new one a few days ago. The Target Disk Mode was still working on the old one, so I manually transferred all the music from the old one to the new one, then added all the songs to the library in iTunes. The only problem now is when I attach my iPhone, it won't let me manage any songs because it's synced with the old computer. I don't want to choose the "erase and sync with this computer" option because I don't want to start over adding the music I want. Is there any way for iTunes to recognize that this iPhone is synced with this library already? I've signed in with the same apple ID I used on the old one.

did you copy the entire directory, or just the music? if it's the latter, it could be because the library itself wasn't copied over. i had similar issues this summer with iphoto when i moved my stuff to a bigger hard drive.

failing that, does any of this help?: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3141

I just did the music folder. I'll erase everything and try again with the whole directory.

Thanks KR!!
