Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Hey - first of all, thanks so much for any help you can provide. here's my Q. when i used to transfer music from my itunes to my regular ipod, i would just highlight the tracks from my music library and manually drag them into the "music" folder within my ipod folder. but why cant i do that with my iphone? the music library in my iphone, when it's plugged in to itunes, cannot be manipulated at all. but this is not what happens with my ipod. am i doing something wrong, or is this some difference between ipod and iphone? THANKS!!!!
This is easy:
On the summary page of your iphone on itune there are three options in the bottom third of the screen just above your capacity summary.
Make sure the button "Manually manage music and videos" is checked and you can drag and drop.

Make a new folder.....name it whatever...."iphone music"... make sure that whe your iphone is docked and it shows up under devices in itunes uncheck sync iphone automatically....check the box that say sync manually and sync checked items.....from your itunes libray choose the songs you want on your iphone...click and drag into your "iphone music" playlist.....when you have everything you want in the playlist go to your iphone under devices, go to music tab, then make sure the box is checked for selecting certain playlists...."iphone music" should be on there...check it's box....then sync....whenever you add more music to your main library put the ones you want into your "iphone music" folder then sync....if you want to remove music then go into itunes go to "iphone music" delete the song that you want removed then sync....this does not remove the music from main itunes library just your "iphone music" playlist.... I put about 200 songs on my iphone....listen at work....and then sync a totally different playlist of 200 different songs...about every two weeks...hope this helps...Also i have not had any problems with music from burned cd's or from file sharing networks...

The easiest way to manage this problem is be creating a Playlist called "iPhone" (or whatever you want to call it) and set the iPhone to only sync with that Playlist. That way you can drag music in and out of that folder (located in the sidebar of your iTunes window) to sync with your iPhone.

This problem is very easy to explain... Go to iphone (where your iphone's name is written) Then click musics.
There will appear Sync music.
Put a check on it and then choose The playlists or (is easier)
you select all playlists. There is the answer for a problem that was once mine :D
thanks for reading!!
