First, apologies in advance if this has already been asked. I haven't found it if it has.

The "Manually Manage Music and Videos" has appeared on the Summary tab in iTunes 7.6 under iPhone. I don't want to mess up my music and so don't want to try it before I find out how it works. I can't find it in the help files either.

How does it work? What does it do?

TIA for any help.

Requires iTunes 7.6 it seems.
iPhone Atlas has a good post - HERE - on it, which says:
iTunes 7.6 adds a great new feature for iPhone users. You can now manually manage media on the device. This means you can drag and drop music and videos onto the iPhone icon to copy them to the device, or delete music and videos directly from the device while it is connected.
In order to enable this option, click on your iPhone in the left-hand pane of iTune 7.6, then click “Summary.” Make sure the option for “Manually manage music and videos” is checked.
