I haven't bothered searching for this topic sorry, I always like the fresh look and also believe there are more people asking this question who would like to see it here I was wondering I have access to two PCs with two different iTunes libraries on on. my iPhone is sync and activated through computer A, I was wondering can I plug my iPhone into computer B and take all the music from that oc without losing all my music?

I would go into the iTunes music directory on computer B and grab the album you want and then copy it into your music directory on computer A and then have iTunes run a scan for any new music. It should pick up the new album ad then you can synch like you should on computer A. But if you hook your iPhone up to a computer other than the one it has a library established with, it will wipe it clean.

Thing is computer B is 150 miles away from computer A ( Main computer) im currently on computer B which has a really good album on that i want to listen to all week. im not too bothered about the rest of my music for this week, so if I plug iPhone into Computer B now it will wipe all music, photos etc, sync the new album i wont have anything on apart from that album........?

I personally use a 500 gig external to coppy all my friends librarys too. Then I just bring them back home and add them to mine.
