Sync only new video with iPod?

Morning guys... a new issue (and it's probably because I'm just a fledgling iTunes user) has cropped up.

When syncing video to my iPhone, it feels that it has to delete the existing video files only to add EVERYTHING as a whole for video (for example: if I have two episodes of "Chuck" on my iPod/iPhone and I want to add the next two, when I click 'Sync', iTunes removes the existing two episodes and then adds episodes 1-4, rather than just adding the next two.

Is there a work around for this? I find that it doesn't delete and re-add all of my music for some reason. Am I simply just missing a setting?

When you have your iPhone connected, cancel the automatic syncing. Select the name of the iPhone from the device list, and to the right there should be a Videos tab, next to the Summary, Info, other tabs. You can set the syncing to sync all videos or just the newest/unwatched episodes. If you've already done so, I don't know why it would re-sync stuff that's already on the iPhone unless you updated the file information in iTunes.

The way it was set was the same option as my music, although it wouldn't delete and re-add all of my library. It's a curious and strange thing, this iTunes issue.

I've (fortunately) decided to go the manual route and simply "drag-and-drop" via iTunes what I have for video and music (gives me a slightly more hands-on approach). Plus I can just as easily delete the files fro my hard drive and not have to worry about iTunes removing it from my iPhone/iPod.

Saves on space AND lets me keep my entertainment! ^_~
