I made a big mistake and updated Itunes yesterday.. I've always been able able to just drag music onto the iphone/ipod/ipad from Explorer.. now I cant even do that.
Yes.. manual Sync. But still, now the only way to do it is to "add the mp3 to the itunes library", then drag it within Itunes from the library onto my Apple device. Then I have to delete it from the library (since a lot of it is on removable backup hard drives), and it's just a whole extra hassle.
And photos. I like to put photos on the Ipad. Lots of people say "just create a single folder, copy the pics you want to it, then sync to that folder".. Yeah well when I'm done and I delete those redundant pics from my PC, then two weeks down the road I want to put a measly 3 other new pics on there, it takes off all the old pics and puts in the new 3. WTF.
I've had it.. Does anyone know of a good 3rd party app amongst all of them out there that works today? I used to use Anapod explorer but I'm not sure if that's good anymore. I also tried Sharepod but apparently it can't write to the newer versions (iphone_ITouch4, database version 51).
For something that's supposed to be user friendly to the computer-illiterate, it's driving my tech EE engineering brain nuts.
I don't want to "sync", I just want to "PUT"..Is it so hard!!? HELP
