    Hey Guys,

    I have an iPhone that is synced with my mac that also has Win7 loaded in a partition. I thought that if I selected "manually manage music" in iTunes I would be able to play music through iTunes on the Win7 side with the iPhone connected. However, I can play music off the iPhone on the mac side no problem but in Win7 everything under the iPhone is greyed out and I am unable to play any music off of it.

    So my question is: what can I do to play music off my iPhone in Win7?

    I think your iPhone is linked to your Win 7 iTunes library, which I guess is the one you used to sync the iPhone the first time. The iPhone can only be linked to one library at a time, it cannot be used like iPods when you just plug in to any computer and start playing music and adding files to it, even if it is with the "manually manage my music" option.

    That may be because you are synced with OS X but not with windows7. I'm not sure though.
