    When I connect my dad's iPhone 3G to his MacBook Pro, iTunes pops up with an error message saying it can't sync the iPhone because the computer isn't enabled for syncing. When you click enable syncing it pops up another message with two options: override and cancel. Whichever option you choose, it syncs the phone anyway! It's an annoying message that pops up every time you connect the phone, how can I get rid of it?

    If your dad syncs his phone to his computer, it won't be able to sync with anyone else's itunes library. You need to check the box that says manually manage music/videos and then you will be able to transfer stuff off any computer onto his phone.
