    Default [iTunes] sync over network ?

    Can I use itunes on my laptop to upload music and movies that are stored on another PC on my network?

    I can't intall the iPhone drivers on my PC with all my media as it has Vista Ultmate installed, which is a 64bit operating system, which as I understand it, there are know drivers availible yet.

    I've used the forums search function, and have so far sucessfully unlocked my family's 3 new week 50 iPhones and with some more reading, I have been able to access the phones files via WinSCP.

    All I would like to do now, is put some music on the damn things, which could be a very slow and boring process, if I have to tranfer files to my laptop and then on to my phones, any advice would be welcomed, thank you.

    just network the computers and transfer the files you want to sync to your laptop it could only take a hour max, then use itunes on you laptop and sync the iphone.

    Sorry but there is no way to add music or files to the phone without syncing with itunes, and network sync is not supported, mainlly because most people wouldnt use it and also it would be messy for drm protection as your are only ment to sync three devices max with drm protected files.

    I'm sorry but that is just flat out not the truth. Besides how would they know that nobody would use it seeing how they have never included it. At least they included Fire wire support for older gen iPods and then discontinued it after 4th gen iPods because "The majority of users will continue to use USB 2.0".

    I would however agree that it does probably have to do with the DRM issues you mentioned.

    Look at the new Zunes. Most of the reviews state that one of the many pro's is that you can sync it over the network.

    The good news is that there are people working on this issue (3rd party apps) but I don't think that it's going to be stream-lined very well to the PC side of it. But we will see.

    So my best bet then is, to build a server to hold my media and run iTunes, that I can remotly control via any PC or laptop conected to my network. Just need to contect the USB to the server and Bobs your uncle... I will still have shared access to all my music and stuff via my 360 and other devices.

    Thanks guys, off to buy some hard drives
