Beware the iTunes Sync
Strange thing happened yesterday… I’ve been using my iPhone as an iPod for the past couple of years. I also prefer to manage what songs I carry so I set my iPhones, iPods and my shiny new iPad syncing to “Manually manage songs and videos”. After upgrading to iTune 9.1 – required if you have an iPad – it seems that you cannot actually rely on this setting.
I had many songs on my iPhone and went to add a video. So I innocently checked “Sync Movies” so I could add The Dark Knight to my phone… What happened was that iTunes UNCHECKED “Manually manage songs and videos” and performed a sync. Imagine my surprise when I got to my car and put my iPhone in the cradle so I could listen to “Them Crooked Vultures” – the first “album” I’ve ever bought from from Apple. I pressed play and nothing. I had NO Music and NO videos. I also was miles away from the ONE mac that can sync with my iPhone…
This is the best software
