    So, when I go to sync songs/videos from my iTunes to my iPhone a message pops up saying "Are you sure you want to remove 32 applications from your iPhone. This will delete these applications and their data from the iPhone."

    No, I don't want to remove these applications.

    I don't understand, I'm only trying to sync music/videos to my iphone from iTunes. Why is it telling me that it will remove these applications?

    I have the Sync applications for the Applicatioins portion unchecked.

    Anyone share some pointers?

    Are you trying to sync stuff between two computers?

    So it isn't going to sync them anymore, so it's getting rid of them. That's how it is for anything on the iPhone.

    That happened to me. Just authorize your iTunes Library again and it should fix it...

    its doing this because you dont have the same applications on both computers if one compuer doesnt have an application that the other one does then when you sync it thinks that your iphone shouldnt have that app so it deletes it.

    all you have to do is go to your apps folder for itunes

    C:\Users\USERNAME\Music\iTunes\Mobile Applications

    copy all the apps into the other computers itunes apps folder

    C:\Users\USERNAME2\Music\iTunes\Mobile Applications

    and then copy it directly onto there itunes, itunes will no longer delete your applications.

    in iTunes, after authorizing, consider right clicking your device and click off on Transfer Purchases.
