    iTunes syncs a Lord of the Rings video i already have on my iphone AGAIN, after i added some new music. It should have just synced the music bc thats the only new stuff i added, whats up with that? it just takes very long and its already on there

    Yeah it does. I don't know what it does that but you can change the sync settings so it doesn't. But if you do that then you have to manually add your music to your iPod. I have mine set to manual because it drove me crazy too.

    You might have changed the file name or some other info about the file.

    Correct. If you change anything at all about the file, even increasing the volume of the file, then the file will re sync.

    Actually, I don't think it will. A couple of months ago my primary computer went down and I started using my laptop for syncing. Initially, I didn't have my libraries accessible through the laptop, yet when I synced my phone it didn't erase my info. I had everything unchecked from syncing contacts to photos to videos and nothing was erased. I synced this way for a couple of weeks before getting my system back together.
