    My PC broke and so I recently bought a new MacBook.

    I can't add music to my iPhone now, and so I click on "Manually Manage Music and Videos" but it says that it will erase my iPhone and sync to the new computer.

    My question is... what exactly gets erased? If it's just music and pictures and videos, that's fine. But is it going to reset me to factory settings? I have a jailbroken iPhone with settings just the way I like it and It'd be a pain to start from scratch...

    If you don't want to lose your music, you need to copy your iTunes xml file to your Mac from your PC.

    I have used the same XML on 5 computers and I can update from iTunes to 1 iPhone from any of the computers.

    I still hate Apple for doing this—assigning a computer ID so that an iDevice will only sync to that computer. They should get rid of it since iTune songs have no DRM anymore.
