What, why can’t I do that?

Ok, I understand that I don’t know all the ins and outs of iTunes yet, but why isn’t it easier to unsync from one computer and then sync to another.

The syncing part is very easy. Unfortunately, I was not on my computer when I first installed the software needed to run the iPad. When I got back on to run a software update (that was quick), my iPad automatically synced itself with my daughter’s computer.

Now I want to move that information to my desktop. Ooops, the iPad is already synced with another computer.. OK, go back to that one and unsync.. I did not see an option to do that.

NOOO! I have to transfer the stuff to the new computer, and then take the iPad back to Mfg default, and then re-install my purchased/free apps. Hmm. That doesn’t copy some PDFs I had placed in the iTunes on the laptop. Why not? I can understand licensing issues. You don’t want to have stuff accessible on multiple computers. I get that. But why not have s command to de-sync the mobile device, and then allow the data on that device to be synced with another computer.

Oh well, I’m just glad I found this out before I got too much stuff on the iPad. More of a nuisance than any real problem. Hmmm, I guess this may be the only apple device I get…..

  1. Ummm…. yeah. Guess I shouldn’t have left a comment, but I wanted you to know that I read this.
    Good luck with your problem, er, nuisance!

  2. taylhis, Why can’t you leave a comment? It is nice to know someone reads our little wanderings, even when they don’t exactly know what it is we are saying.

    The nuisance was taken care of, just not in the intuitive manner I thought apple products were known for. 😉

  3. I just had NO idea what to say to this one, so I said something just to say something then didn’t articulate that very well. 🙂
