How to transfer or sync my iPhone to computer on PC?

inman2787inman2787 Posts: 6Member
My desktop computer that I normally use to sync my iPhone seems to have a virus or something, because it turns off by itself after a while. It does not give me enough time in between it being on and turned off by itself, to complete syncing, backing up or updating. I want to recover my computer therefore losing everything.

What can I do to start hooking up my iphone without losing my apps and settings? Can I move an itunes folder from my desktop to an external hard drive? I don't know what to do, thank you for any help!!!

PS: I have a laptop and an external hard drive (my music and photos are on the external hard drive)

    There is a way to modify the iTunes library ID so your phone thinks it's on the same computer. Google syncing iPhone to multiple computers.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    1) Copy music to new pc
    2) Plug phone into new pc. Choose erase option. Phone will then make a backup on the new pc (which will take some time as it's a full backup and not incremental).
    3) Do a sync on the new pc, it will copy all the music back over, and nothing else will be lost.
