Clay, Great link! Out of all things apple, I have found I cannot wrap my brain around the syncing issue. Since my MBP is my only computer (Yes, I no longer have a Win PC), I'd like to make this the "master" as far as itunes goes. I keep trying to sync my music, but, like a newb, I end up wiping it off of my iPhone and I have to re-sync all my music.

I searched these forums and found I have to manually sync. I'll continue to search the forums, but any links or pointers to have this be the master would be hugely appreciated.

Best
QUOTE Thanks
