Think about what the word "synchronize" means.I am at work and I want to copy a mp4 movie to my iPhone, but when i try to sync its telling me that all my files will be erased. Please help!
This is not the same pc i use to sync on a normal basis
True syncronization would copy the missing files onto the new machine and the missing files on the iPod from the machine. So that both the computer and the iPod match each other.Think about what the word "synchronize" means.
It means that the iPhone will be set up like the folders you select on the computer. Meaning that if you have folders A, B and C on the computer, then folders A, B and C will be on the iPhone, in the same structure.
So, if the files aren't there, then it's gonna try to mirror what's on the computer, on to the iPhone. Meaning, if your "tunes" folder is empty on the 2nd computer you sync to, it will empty the folder on the iPhone, as well.
Right, it does what Wildonrio says, and pretty much mirrors what the PC has. So, it's not 100% REAL Synchronization, it's more of "Mirroring" the PC's selected drives.True syncronization would copy the missing files onto the new machine and the missing files on the iPod from the machine.

Yes, this is where the iPhone differs from the iPod. Manually managing your library is an option on the iPod, but not on the iPhone.I understand that, (regarding sync), but with my ipod i was able to drag a song from my work pc and place on the left pane were my ipod was listed and it would copy the file, with out syncing the whole thing.
I guess that is what i am looking for, just to copy one file and not sync,
