Switching itunes from pc to pc

by bantumi83 / April 24, 2012 2:08 AM PDT

Hi, my name is Jenson.

I own an iPhone 4 and use to sync my phone via my laptop's itune there. I would like to know, is there any possible way to switch itune my laptop to my new pc without disrupting the whatsoever data along the process. I have tried to connect my iPhone to my new PC, of which i hv installed with iTunes, but the phone could not recognise this and considered it as the "new" iTunes and requires me to erase the iPhone so it can sync with new iTunes. Please advice.

There is no quota for iTunes, you can download it as many times as you like.

Would you like to try rephrasing your question?
