    I have 2 iphones. One is a new iphone. One is an older iphone. I recently transferred/synced songs from my laptop to my new iphone on itunes. I also wanted to transfer the same songs from my laptop to my old iphone.


    Both of my iphone name is called pauly's iphone. When i click on sync music, i get message


    syncing paulys iphone with this itunes library will replace media from another itunes library on pauly-pc.


    An iphone can only sync with one itunes library at a time.


    Do i click sync and replace? If i don't then i can't transfer any music right? I guess the only issue here is if i try to sync music or transfer my laptop to an iphone while connecting both iphones at once? Thus just don't connect 2 iphones to laptop at once and im fine? Thus when i try to transfer music/video to my new iphone, i get the same message and each time i do, just click sync and replace?


    Thanks.

    For some reason, only 2 songs synced to my old iphone. None of the 300 plus songs synced at all at the old iphone. Can someone tell me why?

    okay for some reason when i go to settings and music, the sync music which has over 300 songs... i checked elected playlists, albums and genres, when i do this, there is only 1 artist and 2 albums.


    Where is my main library with the 300 plus songs? But when i click on entire music library, then sync, it would show a few steps very quickly and thats all... Earlier it did show songs syncing but where are they now? Theres 3 songs only on my old iphone...

    My iphone SE i was able to transfer about 330 songs... all the songs all from my music folder on my computer.


    My iphone 4s, it for some reason transferred only 3 songs. I cannot transfer the other songs. I clicked sync and it doesn't work at all. Can someone tell me why im having this issue? Basically syncing doesn't do anything. It shows syncing but it does it really quick where its not syncing any songs at all...
