    Hi guys.
    When i bought iPod touch 2g i went to my friend's place and we transfered all his games and apps to my ipod. But when i bought my own app at home iTunes say that all existing aps can be deleted. How to add my own apps to existing ones ?

    I don't believe that you can. Because the other apps were bought with your friend's iTunes account, and now you are trying to add apps bought by YOUR account. They are probably counteracting one another, and the originals are needing to be deleted. I could be wrong though.

    No, it's possible to do but his computer has to be authorized on both accounts. You will need your friends username and password at least initially to set it up. If an update comes out you will have to log back into his account to get the update.

    Jpga is right -- it is possible.
    Your computer has to be added as one of the authorized computers for your friend's iTunes account.
    Then you can disable automatic syncing, plug in your iPod, and transfer purchases.

    With mine the computer simply copied the apps on my itouch and then added the new ones. So I don't know whatsvup with urs. Maybe just buy em on the itouch like that guy said. Or maybe no more stealing apps
