I recently had my macbook taken in for service to due to memory problems or something like that. They upgraded my system to OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard from 10.5 Leopard.
I had backed up all my stuff including Iphoto and my Itunes library. When I got my macbook back, I started putting things from my external harddrive back onto the mac HD. I put the Iphoto onto my desktop first and then dragged it into the Iphoto icon in the dock with no problems. All photos were transferred.
When I went back into my time capsule, I found my I tunes and then dragged it from the external right into the I tunes icon in the dock. All songs transferred etc.
But now when I connect my iPhone, it gives the message that the phone can only be connected to one iTunes at a time to sync my music, movies and ringtones. I assume it means the iTunes in my external harddrive but how can I make this work? I thought I put the iTunes from my external into the new iTunes in my dock of Snow Leopard.
So, I ghave a few questions.
1) is it possible to get my iPhone connected to my new iTunes and sync the music, movies etc that I want?
2) for my podcasts, I just simply chose the option of erasing and syncing with what was in my library because I could easily find them again and download if necessary. I did that with no problems. I was also able to do that with my applications, too.
If I choose that option for my music and movies etc, what will happen? I mean my iPhone is only 16GB but I have alot more music than that in my iTunes library. All the music on my iPhone is also in my iTunes library, so what is the worst case scenario if I erase and sync with the contents in my library?
3) if I erase and sync again, what happens to my photos and recorded movies (from the camera) and my contacts list? do they get erased or is it only the iTunes contents that does that?
If you have any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them!
I tried to deauthorize and then authorize again but nothing changed. I can't transfer or play music onto or from my iPhone. Help please from those mac experts.
