    I sync my iPhone to my work computer, which has no music on it, but contains all my calendars and contacts.

    My family's home computer has all the family's music. Can I sync the music off of this computer without losing my calendars and contacts?

    Or perhaps there is a better way to accomplish this (update all music to itunes plus so it is DRM-free)?

    Thanks.

    Do both iTunes accts use the same ID?
    Just disable the calendar/Contacts sync on the home iTunes and you should be GTG.

    I think I read something about Apple re-releasing iTunes 8 for Windows to fix this exact problem in Vista. Try uninstalling iTunes and downloading it again and reinstalling. Hope this helps.

    Actually, my two sons both use their own IDs on the home computer iTunes. If I plug my iPhone into it says it will erase my library.
