    Question Confused & Annoyed w/ trying to use a 2ndary iTunes account...

    Advertisement



    Hey Everyone...
    Here's the rundown...

    iPhone 3GS
    Vsn. 3.2.1 - JAILBROKEN! (using RA1N & Winterboard)
    Current version iTunes (just downloaded it onto my laptop tonight)

    PROBLEM!
    I wanna add recently discovered songs from my laptop onto my iPhone tonight, but CAN'T, b/c it wants to sync up to this iTunes and replace everything from my original iTunes account that's sitting at home on my desktop computer. It wants to erase & re-sync everything on my iPhone using my new/2ndary iTunes account. I don't want that... I want to keep everything that was put on it from my primary iTunes account, but...

    All I wanna do is ADD MORE SONGS TO WHATS EXISTING, NOT ERASE & RE-SYNC like it's wanting to do...

    Was MAC really stupid enuf to make it so you can't use your SAME iTUNES w/ more than one computer? ANNOYING! LOL!!

    I've read around on the 'net about programs and such, being careful w/ the jailbroken phones, etc...

    Anyway, if anyone has any SIMPLE and EASY TO DO instructions or programs (w/ links listed) to use so I can add additional songs onto my current listing from a 2ndary computer & iTunes account... it would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!! =)

    Thanks SRL... but I'm still confused on it...

    Right now I'm 6 states away from my home computer so I don't really have that option at this point to try 'n' sync up both iTunes folders or what-not... just wanted to add like 20 new songs that I discovered over the past couple wks while I've been gone w/ my laptop outa state...

    Some of this link you sent it set up for transfereing to a MAC... will this be the same for PC... I'm going from a Sony Desktop to a HP Laptop... again, I want BOTH iTunes accounts on BOTH computers to have the same everything...

    At this point, I really miss how easy it was to transfer songs, pics, ringtones, etc... with Blackberry... =( Ugh!! It's no wonder I don't own any OTHER Mac product... LOL!!

    It can be done but takes prep b4 hand so I think for your specific case I don't know of any way to accomplish that on the fly.

    Maybe someone else will pop in and offer a solution.

    I did this once try this, it worked for me.

    Make a backup of computer A, then "restore" it to computer B. Any songs that are already on computer B won't be touched, and anything that was on A and not B will be added to B. Run the backup on B and select the option to backup everything that wasn't backed up before, then restore that one to A.


    Good luck
