    I am doing manual sync but it still says it will delete my songs and replace them with his....


    I just want to get a couple songs off his itunes without deleting any of mine

    Possible?

    I do not think you can do it. Why not have your friend burn a copy for you? Then you can add it to your itunes.

    It is possible, I have my Touch set to manually manage music, and I connect it to three different computers without it trying to delete anything.

    Are you sure you're not confusing it with Enable Disk Use? Because that is definitely not possible on the Touch.

    Do you sync manually with those three computers?

    Indeed I do. On my first touch I initially auto-synced it, but then changed it to sync manually on my home PC. After that I was able to connect it to both my sister's laptop as well as a computer at work with no problems, all my content stayed on the iPod and I could add whatever I wanted. Same circumstances with my second touch (which Apple gave as a replacement for the first). Connected it, hit "manually manage my music" and haven't had any problems connecting to different computers.

    Interesting.

    So if you have movies; A, B, C and D, where A & B are on the Mac and C & D are on the PC, you can sync both the Mac and PC so that A, B, C and D are on the Touch while still maintaining A & B on the Mac and C & D on the PC?

    If so, how do you manage the settings under movies.

    How about contacts, calendars, and pictures. Have you tried this?

    I did it!

    just dont press sync

    hook up your ipod to computer A, and click and drag the stuff you want onto your ipod on itunes.

    Then go to computer B and do the same thing

    nothing gets deleted

    technically, you are not syncing... you're just taking his files and dragging it onto ur ipod


    wooooo!
