i have recently purchased a new pc and having added my itunes library last night I cannot get my ipad to sync with the new library, it shows up in devices but will not sync. Is it possible to sync devices with multiple libraries? if not, what is the point of having upto 5 devices that can be authorised with an itunes id? any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 6.1.3

    If you want to change the computer that it's synced to then see if this user-tip helps :


    But if you just want to add music from that new computer but not change the computer that it's synced to then see this page :


    You can have your account authorised on up to 5 computers, that allows you to buy and use your content on those computer (e.g. play music, watch films). But some devices are designed to only be synced to one computer at a time, so syncing to a new computer would replace the current contents of the device with what is on the new computer.
