    Forgive me if this has already been addressed, but I was under the impression you could now manually manage music/videos with 1.13, but I'm not seeing the option anywhere. Anything special I have to do?

    This is the first time I had heard anything like that. If it were true, it would have nothing to do with iPhone 1.1.3 and everything to do with iTunes 7.6.

    Edit: Well I was completely wrong. Just connect your iPhone and on the main screen in iTunes is a checkbox for Manually Manage.....

    Yes! Download iTunes 4.6 ;)

    It's one of the options on the Summary tab for the iPhone

    PS Sorry istef! But the above is correct..not your info!

    you don't need 1.1.3 you can do it with iTunes 7.6, if you have this installed then connect your phone and then in the options in iTunes there is manually manage music and videos.

    manually manage on other computer

    has anyone tried, to play music back on a other computer with iTunes 7.6 with their iPhone? I get a message that says on it can be synced with one computer and will erase all data, but I just want to play the music off my iPhone on my work computer, I'm afraid to do it cause I need the info for the rest of the day.

    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?

    right i have iTune 7.6 and iPhone firmware 1.1.2

    after downloading iTunes 7.6 i noticed we can Manually manage Music. This is great. However i did notice that when you put a tick into Manually Manage music, when you iPhone is plugged in click on the Music Tab in iPhone and it takes the tick out of the Sync Music box, perhaps that is why your music has gone from iTunes and not your iPhone?

    I also don't know why there's hardly anyone talking about the fact that the manually manage option for the iphone DOES NOT WORK! I need to be able to sync my music at home and then listen to that music on my work computer. It doesn't work. Come on Apple!

    I do have a workaround though (but it's so lame to have to get around this simple oversight!). TouchCopy app works to play your music from your iphone on the second computer. It's 20 bucks and there is a free demo.

    Here is the url:

    Has anyone gotten the manual disk management on the iPhone to work yet?

    Shouldn't it be popping up as another disk in windows for it to work? as I have not noticed that at all - and I have the same issues as I mentioned before when trying to manually add or remove content via itunes.
