  1. And make sure custom made ringtones aren’t erased! I have a basic mistrust of syncing in general and prefer to manually manage everything. I love Apple stuff but still find iTunes too restrictive and DRM paranoid – always punish the customer managing his legitimate collection ig media if at all possible! If while syncing it doesn’t see something in your iTunes library instead of auto-erasing it it should ask to merge.

    And don’t get me started using a device over multiple Macs (I have 4).

  3. Have ‘watched folders’ that you can add music to and iTunes will automatically add them to the iTunes library.

    Without doubt, this is the number 1 problem I come across with people having problems understanding how iTunes manages files.

  5. I’ve been lobbying Apple thru their feedback site, to allow the items at the top of the source list to stay in place when scrolling the playlist window. It’s pain to keep scrolling back and forth between library and specific playlists.

    You’d think this wouldn’t be a big deal to change.
