    Hi all..

    WHy does Apple only allow "one-way" sync from iTunes ?

    It backups every time you sync, but its not-readable.

    (haven't tried his with movies, TV shows or apps, but i assume its universal.

    Basically, Apples forcing us to keep the originals, (which is kind of good anyway), but it would be easier to sync back. iTunes, as i found out doesn't allow this, and for some reason Image Capture is greyed out... iPhoto won;t help either.

    It there a solution to this at all? or is this just "the Apple way" ?

    I'm beginning to think Apple should have left it as a "you can mont this as a disk" ... vs limiting the options. (and not being able to sync and read it on the mac is a limitation).

    I think he wan't to access the raw files inside his itunes backup. (????)

    I'm only giving myself 40/60 odds on this though.
