I have synced with three different computers. Now iTunes want to delete all my stuff on my phone before I get to sync my files from the computer. Why can´t i just upload my music?


iPhone 4, iOS 6.1, Synching with several computers.

    I phones or devices synch with one computer. If you change computers it will ask you to erase and sync.

    Ok, That´s why I don´t use iTunes. It always says that i´ts gonna delete all my music and other stuff on my phone. Thats´not sync to me. Synchronizing to me is to insert information that is missing (or is new data) on anyone of the units. Not deleting. I can´t see that, in a few years time, anyone would want to use iTunes if it keeps work like it does today. Really gets med mad each time i try to understand it. If Apple wants to make it difficult to use other media than the media bought in iTunes they succeded.

    iphones are not storage devices and are not to be used to transfer music from one computer to another. Older Ipods can be used as hard drives.

     

    If you want to copy to another computer here are your options

    I have two kids, one wife, one house, two cars and i work 7-17. I have no time to go to apple University to learn how to sync my data. It should just work. drag and drop. copy-paste. And my originally synced PC doen´t exist anymore. That diks crasched. And I always experiment and try new installations of diffreent OS:es. So why should I stick to just one single computer in the world if i want to sync. Ridiculous. Result: I don´t sync. At all.
