OK.. Can I sync my iPhone to an external hard drive?

If this is possible how and does this mean I can plug and sync into any Authorized computer on my account that way?

HP Notebook, iPhone OS 3.1.2

    No, that won't work. You can have your iTunes library on an external drive, but if you sync to a different computer with the external drive attached, your iPhone will 'know' it's a different computer and the iTunes content on the iPhone will be deleted. The exception to this is if you have a full OS on the external drive and you are booting the computer from it - in that case, you can sync your iPhone to any computer (well, any computer you can boot from that drive, that is...).

    I was kind of thinking that I could not sync to external hard drive directly.
