    Hey all,

    This may be a stupid question, but I have had several iPods/iPhones over the years, and now my latest purchase will not let me add or remove music to it.

    We only have three iPhone/iPods currently in use, so is there a way to tell iTunes that we are no longer using the old stuff?

    Thanks

    I think media can be synced to an unlimited number of iPods and iPhones. Only 5 different computers, though.

    There is no limit to the number of iPod/iPhone/iPad devices you can have iTunes content on. There IS a limit on the number of computers you can maintain functional iTunes libraries of purchased content however, and that is 5. Are you getting a message that says you have authorized 5 computers, is this why you cannot sync?

    No...when I try to add or remove music by dragging from my iTunes library, it will not "drop" into my new phone. I did a music sync, and it added music to my phone, but I want to be able to drag and drop like I could with my 3GS.

    Also when I tried to remove songs from the phone today, it won't let me click on any of them.

    It's strange.

    Are you sure you're manually managing your music?
