    several devices on itunes
    Hi group, I have a question about iphones and backing up with itunes. I already have a iphone 4s and ipad 2 backed up on my imac using itunes. I just purchased a new iphone 4 for my wife. I want to back that up on my imac as well. When I open itunes it sees the 4s and ipad using wifi. It does not see the iphone 4. I plugged the iphone 4 into a usb port and itunes saw the 4s and 4 but no ipad. I did back up the 4 while it was pluged in. When I unplugged the 4 itunes went back to seeing the 4s and ipad. Is itunes only capable od seeing two devices?

    thanx, nod

    ?? Never had a reason to plug more than 1 in at a time.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I've had more than two iDevices plugged in at once, so the answer to your question is "no, there's not a limit of two." Unless you mean wireless? If so, I would imagine that there IS a limit to the number of devices you can see wirelessly at one time due to bandwidth issues.
