    Hi everyone

    I would like to sync my iPhone with multiple computers, my Laptop & my desktop.

    Is there a way to do that with iTunes 10.0.1?

    I know there was a way to do that with iTunes 10.00 and older versions by changing the Library ID, but this trick doesn't work with the latest 10.0.1 anymore.

    Is there another way to make this possible?

    Any help is welcome, thanks!

    I'm not 100% sure this works on iPhones and iPod Touches, but you should be able to check "Manually Manage Music and Videos" and then you can drag songs into it from a second computer without erasing it.

    I actually use to do this, but now when i click that, it tells me I have to erase everything on my iphone and sync with the contents of itunes. anyone else have this problem?

    Yes, you used to be able to change the persistant id in the library files of itunes, and iphone,ipod, and ipad would sync with multiple computers as long as the id was consistant. as of iTunes 10.1 this trick as stopped working for me... might be a coincidence... not sure yet.

    Yes. I SSH'd all my songs out, then used automatically manage music then readded all the folders then consolidated my music files to bypass this. Moral, when you add music to your iPod, add to your library as well

    Make sure your ipod is upgraded to the latest firmware first.
