Nightmare on Itunes-Iphone Street

Being young and naif, I yielded to the temptation to update my iOS to 7.1.1.

Being really stupid, I did also a "SyncMusic" afterwards.

Catastrophy. The entire content of my IPhone Music disappeared, and I could no longer drag and drop into it anything. Also creating a new Playlist is disabled. Manual Sync disabled altogether. No warning or error message.

Spent hours googling around. Tried all options- enabling or disabling any available sync checkbox didn't help. Nothing could solve the issue.

The only thing that SEEMS to work is to drop my MP3s in "C:\Users\pierre\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Automatically Add to iTunes" ,  then do a Music Sync and manually organize in the IPhone the playlist.

Once more, PLEASE DON'T BUY AN IPHONE, it will REALLY make you utterly miserable for his total unpredictability and inflexibility. It's the political equivalent of FASCISM for Smartphones. THEY decide what you can do, according to THEIR rules. It's simply FASCIST that you can't mount the device and access it as a local drive, transferring media files with a simple "cp" command.

They are completely stupid in the way they conceived synchronization - all or none. Only a fascist mind can come up with such a schema, where the user has no options.

I am giving a try to MediaMonkey, I don't want to see ITunes any more in my lifetime.
