    I was trying to add music to my two kid's iTouches.

    I didn't realize I had my son's plugged in and iTunes asked if it should recognize this iTouch as my daughters. (I don't think I'd sync'd his before)

    I said yes and then realized it was my son's iTouch.

    I stopped the sync and didn't loose anything (OHMYGOSH- he would have been mad and rightfully so).

    However, now when I try to re-sync his phone it recongnizes his phone as HER phone and tries to overwrite it.

    How can I stop it from doing that so I can sync his iTouch/back it up so forth?

    I was thinking somehow to see what UDID is was recognizing, deleting her iTouch from my iTunes or something momentarily.

    Turn off all syncing in iTunes, connect his, and figure out how to change I can offer since I have not experienced it.

    I aways have all my ios devises and iPods for that matter set to manually manage. I never turn anything on to auto sync So I don't run into a situation like this and lose everything. Just saying.
