Tonight the laptop i have my iTunes on started acting up. I didn't have a backup of my iTunes so i copied everything put it on my wifes laptop so i have all my songs and ringtones in case this one crashes.

My question is can you only sync to one computer? or if i try it on both will it erase the phone and sync back with whats on laptop #2 ?

edit: i also noticed just now that my cdrom drive isn't working its not even showing up . Is it possible to back up iTunes i mean everything to a thumb drive? i mean so if i have to use my wifes laptop i can sync it to hers and not lose my contacts etc...

thank you

you can manually back up everything to a thumb drive, but you can not use iTunes back up feature to do that. If you use the iTunes back up feature you must use the optical drive.

I went in to my computer, went to my music , and loaded my iTunes folder to a thumb drive then moved it to the other laptop.

I just need to figure out how to move my contacts from outlook express on this one to outlook on the other one.

I have all my photos, ring tones and music moved just need to do my contacts now
