    Default Syncing with 2 computers NOT happening...

    I got my iPad Mini and I was super excited!! I plugged it in my computer at home...downloaded a couple of PDFs and put them through iTunes.

    Now, day two. I got it to office and got a couple of more PDFs. Plugged it in, opened iTunes (actually it opened on its own) and again tried to sync. BUT...It asks for 'Erase and Sync'...

    Now, why does this happen? I logged in with the SAME Apple ID that is at home AND even clicked on 'Authorize this computer' before clicking 'Sync'.

    What is going on. I thought with Apple, things were simplified. I lost all my previous PDFs.

    It is simple. Itís just that thereís a limitation that only allows each device to be synched with a single Mac/PC. If you sync it with another, you are prompted to erase the old stuff. Itís just how it works.
