  • I have an Itunes account on my wife's computer; but now she wants her own Itunes account on this same computer.  How do I do that?

    How can I set up a second Itunes account on the same computer.  I have my Itunes account on my wifes computer and she wants her own Itunes account on this same computer.    Since it's her computer and her Windows log on account, I don't want her to have to log in as someone else.   I have my Itunes account on my own computer...it looks like I might have to take Itunes off her machine (delete the whole program) and then reload with an entirely new account?

    Of course you will want to back up through iTunes.   Because you're using the same computer and you don't your wife to use a different login, the only other option is that you will need to create a separate user account (in Windows) on that computer, open iTunes, and restore from the back up.   The two libraries will be separate through the user profile of Windows.    If you had a Mac it would be the same, because you just simply can't have two iTunes libraries coexist under the same user account at the same time.

  • My daughter and I each have iTunes libraries on the same computer, how can I move some songs from one library to the other?

    My daughter and I each have iTunes libraries on the same computer, how can songs from one library be moved to the other?

    So, if she purchased a song from iTunes in her library, I will also have to purchase the same song to add to my library?

  • I have used the same Apple ID on my children's iPads. Both iPads are now showing as the same. How do I get the missing account back?

    I have used the same Apple ID on my children's iPads. Both iPads are now showing as the same. How do I get the missing account back?

    You can clear the iPad and start again with the other account> Settings->General->Reset->Erase all Content & Settings
    Or you can go to Settings->Itunes and App Stores->Apple ID->Sign Out,
    And Then  Sign in with the other account. You can then download the Apps with that account. Though you may block the other account for 90 days.
    Your best bet is to set it up again using the orighinal account it had, so you can get their Apps back. without affecting your account.

  • We have two iphone 4s on the same computer and after we did the ios6 upgrade the text messages are being sent to both phones. How do we stop this?

    My wife and I's iphone 4s' are both on the same computer.  When we did the new upgrade to ios6 it started sending text messages to both of us from each other.  For example I sent my wife a text "Hey" and then my phone received a message from Me "Hey."  Another example is that a friend sent my wife a text and both of us received it from that friend, but not in a group message. We both deleted our icloud account and the problem still happened.  Then we checked that we were both signed in to our own personal accounts for imessage and we were.  After turning off imessage the problem went away.  Any ideas on how to make imessage work without having it send messages to both of us?  

    I also have the same problem and changed the send & receive addresses . But it always seems to revert back to 2 addresses/numbers on the second , my wifes phone . Which isn't the best .

  • TS2446 A email account that was used is now not in use and songs that were purchased and added are bound to this old account from the same computer how do I the purchaser of these songs reclaim the authorization to play and use in my new account

    A email account that was used is now not in use and songs that were purchased and added are bound to this old account from the same computer how do I the purchaser of these songs reclaim the authorization to play and use in my new account. even though account name may have been changed.

    Just authorize the computer and retreive them.
    Go here -> https://iforgot.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/DSiForgot.woa/wa/iforgot .
    FYI: you should have simply updated the AppleID with new info and continued to use it instead of creating a new one.

  • When I plug in my ipad it automatically tries to back up and download all the contents to the C drive - the PC is too full and I have iTunes on an external hard drive, how do I tell the system to do the backup to the hard drive please?

    When I plug in my ipad it automatically tires to back up and download all the contents to the C drive - the PC is too full and I have iTunes on an external hard drive, how do I tell the system to do the backup to the hard drive please?

    You can open a command prompt by hitting the start button and typing CMD<Enter> in the search box that opens up.
    To move the current backup folder from C: to D: type in this command and press <Enter>
    Move "C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup" "D:\Backup"
    Where <User> is your Windows user name.
    To make iTunes look for the data in the new location type in this command and press <Enter>
    MkLink /J "C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup" "D:\Backup"
    If your external drive has a different letter or you already have a folder called "Backup" then edit "D:\Backup" accordingly in both commands.

    Well, it appears that your backup is corrupt, thus causing your issue. So, you'll have to restore as a new device, & not from backup. Follow this by syncing your content back to your phone:

    Do not restore from backup.

    When converting word to PDF and reducing the size, the formatting changes how can i keep the format but reduce the size?

    The original file is 32 MB:
    15 MB is images
    15 MB is Content stream
    2 MB is everything else
    After the PDF/A-1B save as:
    The file is 182 MB
    Almost 100% is Images
    It is an architecture portfolio with many complex images.  Is there a setting when I change to PDF/A that can limit the growth of the image files?

  • I would like to access both my iTunes and my husbands iTunes on the same computer.  However, we still want our separate logins for our devices (iPad, 2 iPhones) for purchases.  Is this possible?

    Is there a way to have one computer hold both my iTunes account and my husbands iTunes account at the same time.  We do not want to log in and out, but want to be able to access both purchases on the same computer (songs, movies, etc).  However, we want to keep our accounts seperate for purchases on our devices.  Is this possible?

  • How can I move my DRM-protected movies from one disk to another on the same computer without running afoul of the big movie houses?

    I need to off-load my digital copies to another disk I just bought, located on the same computer, so I can have more room for other things; my collection is getting too big, I guess.  I'm afraid if I just move them and re-integrate them back into the iTunes library, it will mess up the DRM status and lock me out entirely.  I'm hoping it won't treat this exercise as one of my allocated copies and increment the counter counting device transfers.  Any ideas as to how to safely do this (without hacking, etc.)?
    Thanks.

  • Using 2 ipods on 1 computer - How do you keep the itunes seperate?

    Want to find out how 2 different users can keep their own itunes library on the same computer without having to have each other's music on each ipod.

    There are actually three main ways to do what you want. There is the manual update that superman suggests, but that requires you to give up all the convience and features of the automatic updates. Here are two other ways:
    For each iPod, go to the prefs and set it to Update only selected playlists. Then you will be given a list of all playlists in iTunes, and you can pick which ones will update to the iPod. This can include smart playlists, so you have a control over what goes on each iPod. If you later make new playlists, just go to the prefs and check them to include them on that iPod. Then, do the same with the other iPod. You can include some of the playlists on both iPods, and have some that are on one iPod and not the other. Your choice.
    The third choice is good when the two users have virtually no music in common. What you do is make a separate login account for each user, and have them run iTunes from that account. Any songs that one user puts in their library will never show up in the other iTunes. It's like they were running on two separate computers. Then let each user sync their iPod to their iTunes library, and the two iPods will not even know about each other. Each will have their own library, thier own playlists, and their own music on thier iPod.

  • Multiple address books on the same computer: How to

    Hi!
    I'll get in the near future my wife's iPhone 3G (unless she keeps it and take her 3GS instead) - but want want to be 100% sure we can have separate address books on the same computer. The question is simple: how do we go about that?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi!
    If it's just the address book that should be different: in iTunes, you can specify for each device what it should sync. For your contacts, you can specify in iTunes which contact groups to sync (at least on my Mac using Address Book I can).
    Does this mean I need to create separate contact groups in the same address book file or can I create a second file? I'd much rather use the second solution. The first solution would in fact mean creating three groups: "His", "Hers" and "Both". This is a shotcut for contact management nightmares!
    Thanks in advance,
    Claude

  • When streaming video from a web site my audio is attenuated differently with different users on the same computer.  withe either user, the sound is very muffled.  all the volumes are set to maximum.

    How can I adjust the safari sound volume other than the usual settings in the system preferences?
    I am using an apple mac air, updated with OS X Yosemite.   Looking at the same web site video from two different users accounts on the same computer,  the sound is drastically attenuated on one user account relative to the other. 
    Sound settings in system preferences are maxed out.

    It seems that the difference between the sites that will open and the one that won't is the Default Authentication provider is set to NTLM on those that open, and Negotiate (Kerberos) on the one that won't. The Authentication Provider for the Default zone
    is Claims Based Authentication on all the sites, just site B (which won't open) is set to Negotiate (Kerberos), the others are set to NTLM.
    Short term: can I change the provider to NTLM without destroying the site?
    Long term: point me in the direction for setting up Kerberos correctly on my server/farm, as from what I can tell Kerberos is the recommended path forward. I'll setup a non-production test site and get it figured out.
    Thanks much.
