I have a new (Windows) PC and I am fed up with booting up my old computer just to sync my iPad and iPod, so I have just decided to install iTunes and sync with my new one.
Music, Pictures and Podcasts are not a problem to sync, I have them all on my NAS and they are in my library.
However, Applications are another matter.
I have right clicked the device (My iPad) and done
Transfer Purchases. I have authorised my computer and all the apps that were on my iPad are now on my iTunes.
However, when I did sync, it still will not copy any new apps in my iTunes. I went to the device/Apps page and clicked the
Sync Apps button, but I got the message that it is synced with another library and to sync apps will wipe everything.
I proceeded because I don't have anything important on my iPad… The only thing that was annoying was it lost the order/groups.
It did lose all the app data, but apart from a few high scores, I do not mind.
(I then performed an update and it did this again… I really don't understand that).
Anyway, Now it is time for my iPod and I really do not want to lose the order, grouping or the app data and I was wondering if anyone knows how I can sync with my new computer without losing anything?
