    what are the correct settings I need to have checked off in Itunes 9? If I check off sync ringtones under the tabs it erases every freakin thing on the iphone!! grrrrrr

    and I did have manage music/videos manually (which it unchecks) and it (itunes) won't let me drag/drop over to the iphone ringtones....

    I am just really confused about the correct order of steps I need to get them over there without erasing everything EVERTIME I want to put a new one on there.

    I did try dragging from my desktop to iphone ringtones which works, shows them there but only ONE shows up on my actual iphone under custom...


    ok: I managed to get them on there....I had to uncheck manage manually and it put everything on my ipod (except for ringtones) then I was able to go back to the ringtone tab, and sync ringtones...but don't select just one, it erases the others!! so then I had to do it all over again....and select all the ringtones for it to be put on .... I think I am grasping how to do this but if anyone has the steps outlined better in what order I'd really appreciate it!!

    Thanks so much!

    Syncing works in this way:

    Whatever is selected in iTunes goes on the phone.
    If you don't select it in iTunes, it won't be on the phone.

    Select "sync all" and just add them one at a time in iTunes. On the next sync, it will go on the phone.
