I'll try to be as concise as I can, but bear with me. We just bought a second one. The first hasn't been synched or backed up since the initial synching. And only music files from our library were added then, no pics or movies or anything else. Have downloaded a bunch of apps from the app store and a fews songs from iTunes. We've also transferred quite a few pics from SD cards.
So what I think I need to do first is get the first one backed up on the PC. But I don't want to synch or back up the pics that we've added because most of them are already on the PC and we have the SD cards. So that leaves the apps and a few songs that need to be added to the PC.
Now, when I get ready to set up the new one, I want to use the same iTunes account but not add all the songs or apps. We want to be able to pick and choose among them. We also would like to avoid updating either to 4.3.3 if possible, but at least the original one.
So, to recap what I'd like to do:
1. Synch and backup only the apps and songs we've added to the first iPad, no pics and no updating to 4.3.3.
2. For the new iPad, pick and choose among all the songs in our library, those we already had and those we've purchased on the original.
3. Pick and choose among the apps we just synched to the PC to put on the new one.
I'm just not sure how to accomplish all this. With all the instances of people losing apps or pics or whatnot when synching or restoring or backing up, I'm very leery of trying it without knowing for sure what I'm doing. I'm a little confused as to what boxes need to be checked where and in what order it all needs to be done.
I hope this all made sense. Any help with getting me through this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
