How do I install a second iPod onto my computer?

I have a 40GB iPod already subscribed to my computer. I recently bought an iPod Nano for my girlfriend. How can I download music from my existing iTunes to her iPod (ie. have 2 iPods sharing the same computer?
Dell 4700   Windows XP Pro  

Two options for using multiple iPods on one machine while sending different music to each are available in this article. You can send the same music to multiple iPods by plugging the second one in to the computer.

  • How do I put music from ipod onto new computer

    I had my Macbook fixed and replaced. When I got it back and tried to plug in my ipod touch, it said that "it's synced with another library, choose erase and install or cancel".
    How can I put my music back onto my macbook?

    Connect your iPod to your computer. When you get the message that it is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press "Cancel". Pressing "Erase and Sync" will irretrievably remove all the songs from your iPod. When your iPod appears in the iTunes source list change the update setting to manual, that will let you use our iPod without the risk of accidentally erasing it. Check the "manually manage music and videos" box in Summary then press the Apply button. Also when using most of the utilities listed below your iPod needs to be enabled for disc use, changing to manual update will do this by default: Managing content manually on iPod and iPhone
    Once you are safely connected there are a few things you can do to restore your iTunes from the iPod. There are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve music files and playlists from your iPod. I use Senuti but have a look at the web pages and documentation for the others too, you'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos and games as well. This is just a small selection of what's available, you can read reviews and comparisons of some of them here:

    If you have any iTunes Music Store purchases the transfer of purchased content only from the iPod to authorised computers was introduced with iTunes 7. You'll find details in this article: Copying iTunes Store purchases from your iPod or iPhone to a computer
    There's also a manual method of copying songs from your iPod to a Mac or PC. The procedure is a bit involved and won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's available on page 2 at this link: Copying Content from your iPod to your Computer - The Definitive Guide
    Keep your iPod in manual mode until you have reloaded your iTunes and you are happy with your playlists etc then it will be safe to return it auto-sync. I would also advise that you get yourself an external hard drive and back your stuff up, relying on an iPod as your sole backup is not a good idea and external drives are comparatively inexpensive these days, you can get loads of storage for a reasonable outlay:

  • Loading a second iPod onto same computer

    Hi. Another iPod nano (white 4 gb) has been added to the household and will have to be on the same computer as the already existing one (black 4 gb). When the setup window popped up I hit cancel for right now all I want is to charge it. It asked me to download an update, and warned that iTunes was to be uninstalled if I went through with the update. Afraid that my songs would be gone too I cancelled. Will the new iPod still be able to accept songs? If not, what needs to be done to make it ready to go?

  • How can I install a second version without affecting the first?

    How can I install a second version of FF without affecting my original installation?

    You can install multiple Firefox versions via a custom install in different installation folders and only use the older Firefox version when you really need it.<br />
    Do a custom install and install each version in its own program folder to use multiple Firefox versions.
    Make sure not to start Firefox after the installation has finished.<br />
    Create a new profile exclusively for each Firefox version.<br />
    Create a desktop shortcut with -P "profile" appended to the target to launch each Firefox version with its own profile.
    See also:
    Use the -no-remote command line switch to open another Firefox instance with its own profile and to run different Firefox instances simultaneously.

  • How do i register a second ipod touch to my computer

    how can i add a second ipod touch to my computer and itunes account and why do i have to enter a card number to verify my itunes account

    Hello Orlosky,
    And welcome to Apple Discussions!
    Not sure as to how that happened, because there is no limit to how many devices you can sync to one computer. To sync to the 2nd iPod, simply hook it up, go through the registration and setup process, and then sync away.
    There are several ways of managing multiple iPods with one computer. I think your best option would be to check out this Apple support document. Hope it helps.

  • How can I add a second Ipod to my account?

    I just bought my daughter a second hand Ipod touch and I can update the version nor can I download things on it.  How can I add a second Ipod to my existing account?

    Plug it in and upload your music.
    You don't need to have two separate accounts for iTunes on one computer, me and my 3 roomates all share the same computer and iTunes library. Separating them only causes headaches.
    If you really want to though, if your on a windows computer you can create another user for the computer by going to my computer and add a user, then once in the new user download iTunes and upload music. One thing to remember with this however the iPod and iTunes does not support fast user switching (meaning when switching users in windows instead of logging out, just going to switch profile.)
    Hope this helps,
    Ms D.

  • How to copy backup of iTunes library onto another computer?

    My primary laptop with my music library just crashed. I have a older laptop that I plan to use while I get the other repaired. I have a complete backup of my music library on external drive. After installing iTunes on the spare laptop I copied the backup music library to the iTunes music folder. However, when I start itunes, nothing shows up in iTunes. This has probably been discussed but several searches have not found how to recover this. Does anyone know what the process is?

    If you want to backup your iPod onto another computer you can download a program called "iPod to computer transfer" at the following URL: 0to%20computer%20transfer&OVMTC=standard&OVADID=29342709512&OVKWID=117472586512
