    I was wondering if I am the only one with this issue... I have iTunes 7.6 and the latest 1.1.3 firmware on my iPhone and was expecting the manual disk managment to be like with my iPod Touch... namely plug it in and be able to add and delete music/movies manually except that it doesn't seem to work like that!

    In order to enable manual disk managment I have to click it on EVERY PC I plug it into - which then wipes the iPhone clean - Obviously it should not be doing that!

    Even when I selected manual managment on my PC that I was auto-syncing the iPhone with previously it didn't want to work properly - videos I deleted manually and were GONE in iTunes remained on my iPhone and would no longer show up as being there even though they still were and I could watch them.

    In the end I removed the videos from the playlist and resynced automatically and they vanished... now is it just me having issues here or has anyone else had similar problems with manual disk management?

    I am having the same problem. As are all of my co-workers.

    I was so glad to see that this was a feature -- I had been waiting for this ever since I got my iphone. I need to be able to add music to my iphone at home and bring the iphone into work, plug it into my work machine, and listen to my music. I thought that's what this new feature would allow, but it doesn't! A few co-workers and I tested it and our music was still "grayed out" on the other machine. I am so disappointed! What good is manual music management mode if we can't listen to our music on a second computer?! I'm starting to miss my old ipod that could do this with ease :(

    mark me down as having this problem also. I am very bummed because not being able to sync at work and home is a very big pain and I thought that was finally fixed this morning.
