    I recently got a macbook pro and I am wanting to do all my iPhone syncing from my mac instead of the compaq that I had been using. Is there any way to get my downloaded apps from my pc to my mac? I've bought some apps from iTunes (same account as iTunes on PC) through my mac and don't want to erase all the apps on the iPhone that are already there when I sync.

    Thanks

    You can go to download and hit check for download and it should download everything you bought on iTunes account or plug iPhone up and check for purchases.

    Try the "Download" option and it didn't work.

    Should have tried Youtube first. That method worked perfectly.

    Thanks for all the help!

    I viewed the YouTube video... wow, this is overkill, designed for keeping both computers synced at same time. What if this breaks with new versions of iTunes? I would not recommend changing anything that drastic (using HexEditor? Gawd...).

    If all you need to do is move your syncing from compaq to mac, first export your iTunes library into an xml file in the iTunes folder, then simply copy the entire iTunes folder (which includes iTunes Music folder, Mobile Applications, etc.) to your Mac into the Music folder (in your User folder).

    Start iTunes, and import the xml file (which was copied over with the entire iTunes folder). Connect the iPhone, restore, and restore your settings from the automatic backup. That worked for me. iTunes re-syncs everything.

    Has anyone gotten the youtube method to work with iTunes 8.2 and iPhone 3.0? No luck on this end.

    couldn't you just use the migration assistant on the mac to get all of your information over from the pc? then syncing the IPhone would work as if it were set up on the mac in the first place? or am I missing something???

    In Windows, I just copied everything in the C:\Users\username\Music\iTunes folder from one PC to another and itunes didn't have a clue I was using a different PC. It just started syncing without deleting anything.

    A plain copy was sufficient.
