HT1296 Can I sync my iPhone with more than one computer. I have an MacBook Pro that I want to use to sync my iPhone on the road. My phone is synced to my iMac at home. When I try to sync the iPhone to the computer it says it will erase all my apps.

How do I sync my iPhone to more than one computer, I have a iMac and a MacBook. Can I sync my phone to both computers?

Iphone will sync with one computer at a time.
Syncing to another will erase the curretn content.

    Sync iPod/iPad/iPhone with two computers
    Although it isn't possible to sync an Apple device with two different libraries it is possible to sync with the same logical library from multiple computers. Each library has an internal ID and when iTunes connects to your iPod/iPad/iPhone it compares the local ID with the one the device normally syncs with. If they are the same you can go ahead and sync...
    I have my library cloned to a small 1Tb USB drive which I can take between home & work. At either location I use SyncToy 2.1 to update the local copy with the external drive. Mac users should be able to find similar tools. I can open either of the local libraries or the one on the external drive and update the media content of my iPhone. The slight exception is Photos which normally connects to a specific folder on a specific machine, although that can easily be remapped to the current library if you create a "Photos" folder inside the iTunes Media folder so that syncing the iTunes folders keeps this up to date as well. I periodically sweep my library for new files & orphans with iTunes Folder Watch just in case I make changes at one location but then overwrite the library with a newer copy from the other. Again Mac users should be able to find similar tools.
    As long as your media is organised within an iTunes Music or Tunes Media folder, in turn held inside the main iTunes folder that has your library files (whether or not you let iTunes keep the media folder organised) each library can access items at the same relative path from the library folder so the library can be at different drives/paths on different machines. This solution ensures I always have adequate backups of my library and I can update my devices whenever I can connect to the same build of iTunes.
    When working with an iPhone earlier builds of iTunes would remove any file not physically present in the local library, even if there was an entry for it, making manual management practically redundant on the iPhone. This behaviour has been changed but it will still only permit manual management with a library that has the correct internal ID. If you don't want to sync your library between machines on a regular basis just copy the iTunes Library.itl file from the current "home" machine to any other you want to use, then clean out the library entries and import the local content you have on that box.

    You have 10.6 on that machine, I suggest you stick with it for performance, third party hardware and software reasons as long as possible.
    Consider 10.8 (not 10.7) when it's released, because 10.7 and 10.8 will require a new investment in software and newer third party hardware as it requires newer drivers the old machines won't have. (forced upgrade because of software, really nice of them)

  • WebObjects 5.3 WOHyperlink can't call an action with more than one argument

    Hi there,

    I used WOHyperlink with more than one ?<ARG> binding to build http requests...
    It used to work in 5.2.3, but not anymore in 5.3. The problem stems from the ampersand character that separates args, because it is now replaced by &.

    Any suggestions

    Hi Caroline
    you should be able to apply the exact same principles to your multi query report. The XML will have a main root node and then the results of the queries underneath.
    So if you had 3 queries you'd get something like
    <REPORTNAME>
    <G_FIRST_QUERY>
    </G_FIRST_QUERY>
    <G_SECOND_QUERY>
    <G_SECOND_QUERY>
    <G_THIRD_QUERY>
    <G_THIRD_QUERY>
    </REPORTNAME>
    In the template you will be able to map on to the separate sections of the XML very easily.
    regards, Tim

  • Syncing I pod with more than one computer

    I want to sync my I Pod on a laptop but we also have it installed on a desktop. When we try to sync with the laptop, I Tunes says that the i pod is already synced with another computer and wants us to deleate that computer. Can I tunes be synced to more than one computer and if so, how do you do that.

    What you'll want to do is manually manage the iPod, in order to put content onto it from multiple computers.

  • How can I search for files with more than one keyword?

    I´ve created some keywords, and some files in my folder are tagged with two, three or more keywords.
    Is there a way to search for files using more than one keyword on the search field?
    Thanks!

    Use the Find command (menu Edit) and in criteria at the right side is a plus sign to add another criteria and set it to your custom wishes.

  • Can u have more than one account on a single pc as i dont want others using my account, and we all use same pc

    can i have more than one itunes account on a single pc, as i dont want others using my acount

    The most practical route is usually for each person to have their own user account in Windows. Then everyone's iTunes library will be completely separate and each person can have and use their own iTunes Store account without impacting anyone else's information and account.

  • Can i sync my iphone with more than one itunes library without erasing content?

    So i just got a replacement iphone yesterday, and restored from a backup all my contacts and stuff.
    I dont have my own laptop so when it comes to music i get all of my mine from other computers...this has never been a problem with my phone or ipods, but i guess it is now...when i click on manually manage it says:
    "An iPhone can be synced with only one iTunes library at a time. Erasing and syncing replaces the contents of this iPhone with the contents of this iTunes library."
    so i cannot go to a second device and take songs from them without erasing the ones from the previous comp.
    they used to be able to authorized on up to 5 comps right? is this a new strict setting, or is there a way around it??
    thanks

    No. An iPhone can be synced with only one iTunes library at a time. Erasing and syncing replaces the contents of this iPhone with the contents of this iTunes library.
    Basically you'd want to get the music to the library first, then sync it to the phone after you get it set up in your library.  iTunes will not transfer songs off the phone that were not purchased through the iTunes store, so they need to be in your library beforehand. You might consult with the googles if there are other third party ways to do that.
    The 5 compy authorization is for iTunes account authorization, which means transfering music bought through itunes, apps, etc.

  • Syncing iPhone with more than one Mac

    Up to now I've synced my iPhone with just one of my Macs, the main desktop machine that sits at home. However, when I'm away from home for more than a few days I miss the ability to sync podcasts, applications and do backups.
    Is there a way of syncing the phone with a second (or third) Mac without having to have the full iTunes library on those computers? I would like to be able to backup the phone, sync apps and podcasts. Music and videos do not matter as long as the sync doesn't wipe existing copies from the phone. Incidentally, I use MobileMe for syncing calendars and contacts, so that isn't an issue. Any guidance would be appreciated.
    Michael
    <edited by host>

    I think that without the steps in that 'minefield' the iPhone will detect a change of Mac and even if all the content is on the other Mac, it will all have to be re-loaded onto the phone. Probably not a good idea to keep the library remotely, I expect. But, copying the whole library may work - if you have the time, it's worth a try. Just sync the iPhone to your desktop machine first so the backup is updated, then copy over the library to the portable, then try syncing there. If it works, great. If not, you can Restore the iPhone from the desktop if you need to.
