Sorry, but an iPhone can only be synched to one iTunes library. Manual management with an iPhone only allows you to control what gets synched to the iPhone; unlike other iPods it doesn't allow the iPhone to be synching with multiple computers. You'll need to copy all the tracks, etc. that you want to have on your iPhone to whichever computer you'll be using to synch with the iPhone.
Wow, so if I buy a track on itunes at work, I cannot put it on my iPhone until after I get home and put that same track on my iMac?
Thats just silly, but then again I guess I could just buy the track on the iPhone itself and problem solved. Only issue there is that if I bought a music cd, put it in my itunes at work and then I would not be able to put that music on my iPhone until I got home. Blah...
There's another thread on this as well ...
The problem is that I *don't* want to *sync* to 2 different computers ... I just want to play the music or videos directly from my iPhone on a computer running iTunes.
Seems this doesn't violate any copyrights or Apple's authorization scheme as the music or video is never copied to the computer in question. Fundamentally all I want to do is use the computer as an external display (or speakers). If I can do this through an iHome or Bose sound-dock or any of the 100's of accessories that support the iPod/iPhone connector, why can't I do it on my PC???
