I don't want to sync what is on my iPod to my iPad. (I have a 32gb iPod but only 16gb on iPad. The iPod I use mostly for music.) I can't seem to add the films I have downloaded onto iPad to iTunes. If I could do that, I could erase them from iPad to create more storage.
This is intensely confusing, sorry.

Question.....
"I own an iPhone4, an iPod 3rd generation and an iPad 2. I use the same iTunes library but unfortunately synced iPad with a different computer before syncing to my own. Do I risk losing the films/apps I've downloaded onto my iPad if I sync with my iPod?"
Answer.....
Yes you will lose the films that you downloaded to the iPad when you sync with your own iTunes unless you transfer the purchases into your own iTunes library. Were these movies that you purchased? If so, you might be able to download them again for free. Do you have multiple computers that you sync from or is this someone else's purchased content?
You can select whatever you want to sync to all of your devices in iTunes, you do not have to sync the same content to all device.

    Each of you should set up your separate iCloud account on your own computer using your Apple ID. This gives you two independent iCloud accounts.
    Note that an iPad is not a multi-user device. It can only be synced with one account.

  • HT1947 can the remote app access the same iTunes library while paired from 2 different iPhones

    my husband and I want to use the remote app on each of our respective iPhones to access the same iTunes library via AppleTV.  is this possible?

    how do i do that?  it's already working on mine, and he just loaded the remote app on his iphone and set up home sharing with my apple ID.  However, when he tries to add my iTunes library, it gives him a code but I can't see his iphone device name so we can't pair his iphone. 

  • Can I use my ipod and an iphone on the same itunes library?

    How do you use the same itunes library for multipul ipods/iphones? >
    First of all, when it comes to music I create playlists. That makes it more easy to handle on different devices.
    When I plug in my iPhone I select the playlists, video or other data I want to have and sync. Same with my iPods. After that I have similar playlists and data on my iPhone and iPods, even calendar and adressbook are updated.
    Hope this helps,
    Cheers,

  • Can you connect two iPods to the same iTunes library?

    This might sound dumb but I honestly have no idea - I want to purchase a second iPod but don't know if I can run them both from the same iTunes library? The new one I want is a shuffle so a much small capacity then my other iPod. Help.

    you can use a virtually unlimited number of mobile devices with a single iTunes library. in fact, Apple wants you to buy as many of them as possible

  • How do I sync multiple iPods to the same iTunes Library?

    How can I sync multiple iPods to the same iTunes Library?

    The same way you sync just one. If y want different media on each iPod then only select the items you want synced to each iPod
    iTunes: Syncing media content to iOS devices and iPod       
    Try syncing using the manual method

    Also, I would go to iTunes>Preferences>Devices and check the box that says prevent iPods... for syncing automatically so that you can more easily check what you want syned

  • HT204053 i have set up both an i pad * ipod with the same itunes account but now want to seperate them

    Hi can anyone help.
    I have set up an ipad & ipod using the same itunes account but I now want to unlink them as everything my son downloads appears on my i pod. also i want to change certain  e mail accounts?
    How do i do this , not very technically minded so help needed!!!!
    Many thanks

    You can't. Apps and content are tied permanently to the iTunes Store account through which they were purchased. Her MBA will need to be authorized to your iTunes Store account and she'll need that account information to be able to update the apps and re-download content, or they'll need to be repurchased through her iTunes Store account.

    Hi tomgoggs,
    iTunes purchases do not count against your iCloud memory space. See this article for what iCloud is used to store -

    If you are having an issue with iCloud memory being full, you may want to use the steps in this article to help -

  • My gen 3 iPod Touch seems to have duplicated all my music since updating to IOS 5 so that it now only holds half as much. What can I do about it? I'm using the same iTunes library with OS 10.6 and all software up to date.

    Is the camera damaged? Could be a hardware problem.
    Try:
    Close the Camera app in the multitasking bar, then try again.
    Restart/Reset/Restore your iPod. In that order.

  • Two accounts with the same iTunes library (at same time!)

    Hi, on my iMac I setup my iTunes library (connected with ATV), guessing what happens if I move this library to the shared folder on my iMac and in the same time this is opened by the two accounts present on my iMac (me and my wife).
    Should I make the connection with ATV also on my wife's account ? What happens to other account ?
    Thanks.

    only one iTunes can access a library at a time.
    instead, you could try this:
    i assume both you and your wife have their own iTMS account. if that is so, you might want to try to cross-authorize iTunes on each account to play/use content purchased by the other. this works at least for an iPod Touch so i would be surprised if it didn't work for the TV.
    that's basically very easy. all you have to do is +log out+ of one account (click on the account name in the Store window and select sign out from the pop-up dialog) and into the other, and then they will both be authorized. (be sure to just *log out*, not de-authorize ).

  • Can 2 apple id using the same itunes library?

    Hi .. I'm using ipone 4s and ipad3 using 2 different apple id. Can i used the same itunes library for both? Where i can copy thosevpurchased app in ipone to ipad?

    From Here   http://support.apple.com/kb/HE37
    I have multiple Apple IDs. Is there a way for me to merge them into a single Apple ID?
    Apple IDs cannot be merged. You should use your preferred Apple ID from now on, but you can still access your purchased items such as music, movies, or software using your other Apple IDs.

  • Can 2 iPhones control the same iTunes Library with Remote?

  • The same itunes Library and playlists on the same computer with two systems

    I want to have the same itunes library and playlists on the same computer with the two different Os 10.3.9 and 10.4.9 each one on the different disk. without copy this in the itunes folder (because my library its 30Gb)
    I have the same user name on the Os. I use the same version of itunes in both systems
    I use my ipod to play the library but its not the best solution (i lost my library in ipod twice because I confused from what os was synchronized)

    Hello and Welcome to Apple Discussions. 
    Amalgamate the two iTunes libraries. Then load iTunes and hold down the Option/Alt ⌥ key and then choose "Choose Library" and then point both copies of iTunes to use the combined iTunes library.

  • Can I sync the same iTunes library on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro?

    Can I sync the same iTunes library on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro?  I've been connecting my iPhone to each and it's causing problems for me with them being different, despite my purchases always being under the same Apple ID.

    The easy way to do this is to keep the library on an external drive which you can plug into either computer.  Of course this isn't always the desirable solution.  You can try routinely copying the library from computer to computer though this gets tiresome. 
    Of possible relevance:
    Using iPhone, iPad, or iPod with multiple computers - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1202 - You can manage your iPhone, iPad, or iPod with multiple computers as long as you have set the device to "Manually manage music."  -  e.g. adding music from a second computer to an i-device.
