  • Can You Run 2 ipods off the same computer?

    I have recently upgraded to a 60GB Colour Ipod, but still want to use my ipod mini for training with. Am I able to use both my mini and my colour ipod on the same computer with the same i-tunes?

    Are you trying to connect both at the same time? Just connect the mini without it's big brother connected.
    Otherwise, you might need an iPod software update.

  • Can you connect 2 iPods at the SAME TIME to iTunes?

    I have a HUGE music library and I have 2 60 Gb iPods. I manage them manually. I'd like to connect them BOTH, AT THE SAME TIME , to make it easier to make sure they have totally different songs on each of them, and remembering is out of the question :-}. I would have to connect them both simultaneously, and be able to drag songs to either of them. Can this be done without problems?

    Welcome to Apple Discussions.
    From what I have heard, it is possible to do so. I have never tried to do that, though, so I have no experience on this.

  • 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

    I have an iPod mini connected to iTunes. I just bought a Nano and I want to create a new library/playlist for it. When I plug it up it begins copying all of my files from my mini onto my nano. How do I separate the two? I need to have this accomplished before Xmas Eve. PLEASE HELP!!!!

    with your ipod plugged in to the computer, go to itunes, preferences and then the ipod tab then under the music tab, select manually manage songs and playlists......
    that way you can plug it into any computer, and it wont automatically wipe everything....
    and you can put music on from any computer..

  • How many times can you clean install leopard on the same computer?

    How many times can you clean install leopard on the same computer? Will the leopard dvd run out of installations and not let you install anymore?

    Hi colman Prez;
    Now that the funny comments have been made, I have a serious question and that why are you worry about reinstalling Leopard with an Erase & Install which is what I take that you mean when you say clean install. In actually fact there is no such thing in OS X as a clean install.
    I am curious because in all the years I have used OS X, I have yet to do an Erase & Install yet.
    I know with Windows that they suggest reformatting and reinstalling at the drop of a hat but that isn't true with OS X.

    There are actually a number of methods for using more than one iPod on a single computer. Method one is to have two Mac or Windows user accounts which by definition would give you two completely separate libraries. Method two is to set your preferences so each iPod is updated with only certain playlists within one library: How To Use Multiple iPods with One Computer
    If you choose the update option "automatically update selected playlists only" you can create a playlist specifically for each iPod and drag the tracks you want into it. If you tire of the list and want to change it, you just add or remove the songs you don't want. The ones you take out out remain in the library to be used by the other iPod. Make your playlist a Smart playlist and limit the size to just below the advertised capacity of your iPod (For example if using a Mini or Nano that's around 3700MB for a 4G). You can read more about playlists at these links:
    iTunes: Creating playlists of your favorite songs
    How to create a Smart Playlist with iTunes
    Or of course you could set one or both iPods to "manually manage songs and playlists" and drag whatever you like to them.
    For info:
    The iPod offers three ways to transfer music from your computer. You can select one of the following update modes from the iPod Preferences menu in iTunes (Edit=>Preferences=>'iPod' tab):
    1) Automatically update all songs and playlists. This is the default mode, in which your entire music library, including playlists, is automatically synced to your iPod. If the music library on your computer exceeds the iPod storage capacity, you are prompted to select a different update method.
    2) Automatically update selected playlists only. With this option, iTunes automatically copies the playlists you have selected to the iPod when you connect it to the computer.
    3) Manually manage songs and playlists. You can also choose to transfer music to the iPod manually. This allows you to drag and drop individual songs and playlists from iTunes to the iPod.
