    Hi All,

    This question might have been answered already and if it is, sorry in advance for repeating it. I can't seem to find a solution to my problem and I am hoping someone here will be able to help.

    First of all, I bought an Imac for my own use and transferred all my music from my previous computers to this Imac. Afterwards, for work, I bought an Macbook Air and downloaded, or purchased additional music. The issue is I can only transfer the music to my IPAD from either Imac or Macbook Air; not both. I would like to easily Sync my IPAD with both Itunes. Some of songs are the same and some songs are different and I really don't want to go through each computer, deleting the repeating ones. :)

    Thank you in advance for your help,
    Best regards,

    There's no reliable way to sync an iPad with 2 computers. There is a hack I tried once but it ended up not working very smoothly.

    I'd just make sure both computers are authorized with the same iTunes account, and set them and your iPad to auto download purchases. That way if you buy a song on one computer, it will show up on both computers plus your iPad.
