    Cool iPhone 4 won't connect to iTunes on New macBook
    I used migration assistant to set up my new MacBookPro this afternoon (from my old MacBookPro), everything copied fine and I'm up and running (took just over 4 hours!), anyway, I just plugged in my iPhone (4) to sync it (on the new MBP), and I get the message "iTunes cannot connect to this iPhone, you do not have permission". I have authorised this new MacBook and everything is present (music, apps etc), so I guess I'm missing something really really obvious ..... help?
    chances are I think you are a douche.

    Did you create an account on the new machine before using the Migration Assistant to migrate your data? If you did, that's probably the reason why.

    Ah, the old "Reboot" trick. Good to hear, have fun and visit us often.
