My son has Ip an ipod touch, (purchased last year xmas 2009) think its the 3rd gen. When he got it we had a different computer which he initially logged as his home computer. This has since broke and we brought him a new laptop for xmas. I have authorised this laptop but I am unable to access the apps properly through Itunes. I want to be able to manage them, delete etc but I am unable. Can anybody advise how I can change the home computer to the new laptop so as I can properly manage the apps on the ipod??? Thanks

    Transfer the apps from the ipod to the computer. Without syncing: File>Transfer Purchases

    Ipod touch will sync with one computer at a time. When you sync to another, it will erase the current content and replace with content from the new computer.

    Move everything from your backup copy of the old computer to the new one first.
