    SO I got a macbook pro for christmas, it's awesome etc. I copied all my songs to the mac and synced the ipod, which took a while (to resync everything). But I realized that if I get new music on my desktop and try to sync with it, it'll have to resync everything again. Is there a way to cancel this? For it to only copy the new songs?

    With iTunes you can only sync the iPod onto one computer without having to erase all the content before re syncing. There may be other other programs that let you do this but iTunes is not one of them.

    Can't you manually manage your music and chose what gets transfered...?

    I don't think that's what I meant but thanks anyway.

    I learned about shared libraries in itunes, for some reason I was able to copy the whole library from the desktop to the library and was able to listen to the songs from my mac and import them to the mac's library as well. But now, when I download a song in the mac I can't share it, nor can I share anymore music from the desktop

    Edited:

    What I wanted all along was the shared library, download music from either computer and be able to have it on both compters. Ill just sync with my mac.

    I encountered this same problem, i would love to do what you want to do. iTunes should be like Steam, all you have to do is make sure you're computer has the program on it and you can redownload anything you've ever bought through steam.

    Wait does this mean if I put windows 7 on my computer, I'll have the same problem?!?!?!

    And someone bought you a 1.2k Christmas present?
