How to sync iTunes on a new Mac without erasing data? Before you answer I CANNOT copy over any files from my Mac to this fresh Mac (mum's mac) because she's in Canada and I'm in Japan. I didn't think to bring over my iTunes data files with me on my thumb drive. I believe it is IMPOSSIBLE to load my iPhone up with music and videos (sync to mum's iTunes) via her Mac without authorizing and losing my data right? Really sucks because I just want to put a couple of files movies and CDs on my iPhone. Hmmm I'm thinking some kind of WiFi file transfer app? Last solution. JB then SSH or something right? .
