Couple PCs at home and a few at work. I've installed iTunes on each and with my Touch I was able to simply plug it in and drag songs to it. With the phone, it always tells me it has to erase and sync when I select manually manage music. Is there a way to use more than one PC. I visited the Genius bar today and was told it has to erase ONCE and then you can use as many PCs as you want....NOPE. I select manually manage on one PC, drag music to phone...great. I plug into another PC, select manually manage, it tells me it needs to erase and sync, so all files gone, but manually sync is selected and I can drag files to it. Plug back into original PC. Manually select is not check as it was before. I check it, said it needs to erase and sync. It's a vicious circle. Anyone?

You should just need to enable "manually manage" on the iPhone.

On the phone? Where on the phone?

Can you step by step that please because I am not understanding what you are saying. I spent an hour in the Apple store yesterday afternoon and we could not get it to work.

Load iTunes.
Go to the iPhone icon in the left hand bar.

Click on it.

Go to the general tab and click the "manually manage music" checkbox.
