iTunes, Windows, & device syncing

iTunes, Windows, & device syncing

Postby Dugan » Wed Aug 31, 2011 1:43 am

I have Apple iDevices that I've been syncing & backing up using iTunes on a particular computer, which is Windows 7. What happens if I decide to do this on another computer? Anyone done that? Will it just bring all my stuff from my iTunes account and the stuff stored on the devices to the iTunes installed on the other computer?

You can only transfer things bought directly from itunes to a different computer. Anything (in my case music) not from them is not transferable from the device. There are work arounds and programs that will allow you to transfer other files however but it isn't an automatic thing. (When a device is plugged in if you right click on it when it appears under devices in itunes it will give you the option to transfer purchases.)
