    MBP: Photos, Apps, Rings-tones, Books
    PC: Music, TV, Movies

    How can I sync my music from my PC onto my iPhone that is registered to my iTunes on my MBP???

    I check on the "Manually manage music and videos" on my MBP, but when I plug my iPhone into my PC, it's unchecked. If I check it on my PC, it says it will erase everything...

    PLEASE HELP!!! I'm usually very savvy with software, but I'm at a loss.
    (Yes, i did Mroogle it, answers weren't helpful)

    Look, I realize that this isn't the most interesting thread, but someone here has to know the solution. I can't be the only one in in this situation.

    Thanks in advance!

    Can't be done. Only one library can be synced unlike iPods.

    You can only sync to one computer at a time. When you click Manually Manage, that essentially telling that computer it's going to be the one, and will erase your phone.

    This. Move your stuff to one computer.

    This is yet another huge EPIC Steve Jobs fail. I've been saying this for 2 years now but the fanboys on this board simply insult me and try to start a flame over it.

    However, rather then listen to all the Fanboys, I decided to find a solution, and you'll be happy to hear that it's not too difficult. A little Hex Editor, and changing a couple XML files on BOTH computers, and viola, you will permanently be able to sync any iphone, ipod touch, and ipad with both of the computers in question! YAY!!
