So you want to amalgamate the music onto your iPhone? I don't think that's possible.

Why don't you just merge your iTunes libraries so you just have it on one Mac instead of two? Problem solved. :D

This is a slippery path I wouldn't risk walking on.
AFAIK it's not possible.

Why not use a home server/DLNA certified NAS to hold the music and synch with one Mac?
Or just synch both libraries?

If that's not option, I don't know what I can tell you to be honest.
I shall have a google ride for you in a few moments, so hold out! :D

My guess is, one of the Macs is not your's right?

I had the same requirement. Reason for having it on 2 systems is because you might want to keep them both in line with each other. Nothing worse than wanting to synch from mac 1 and it tells you it wants to delete all your music etc.

It's possible with editing a XML file on both machines but at the moment I don't have the link. Soon as I find it I will post.

I googled before and all the articles about syncing in different macs are couple years old and dont think it works anymore.
I was thinking copy the entire iTunes music folder and paste it into 1 mac and sync... i think thats the only way... damn apple... :/
