How do i get two ipods on one computer

Ok How can I share songs with two ipods on one computer!!! Help PLEASE !!!!!!!!!1

There are a couple of methods for using more than one iPod on a single computer. Have a look at the article linked below. Method one is to have two Windows 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. Have a look anyway and see what you think and go for whichever you feel suits your needs best: How To Use Multiple iPods with One Computer

  • How can I use two Ipods on one computer.

    I was wondering if it is possible to use 2 Ipods on one computer without having to reload all of the music to the new library.

    If you are adding a second iPod for your own use, just connect the new iPod to your computer and follow the on screen instructions. It will update from your existing library. Depending on the size of your library and the type of iPod you choose you can have it update all songs and playlists, selected playlists only or you can manage it manually

    Method two is to set your preferences so that any or all of iPods get updated with only certain playlists within one library:

    Choosing the update option "Sync Music - Selected playlists" allows you to 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.

  • How do you get two accounts on one computer?

    I have my two different devices with two different accounts. Is there anyway to get both libraries on one computer? I've tried a few things but I can't figure out how to do it. Any tips?

    An iTunes account is nothing more than a login ID and password.

  • How do I manage two iPods on one computer please?

    I have an iPod (early 40G model, and it's fine). I installed iTunes, and all fine. A year goes by. Another member of the household gets an iPod (mini), and we load the software into a different subdirectory in Program Files. This erases my iTunes, but all still works fine for some reason. i.e. when I attach my iPod, it is recognised, and my iTunes music is shown on the screen. When the other iPod is attached, same thing (i.e. it is recognised and her iTunes are shown on the screen). Our different music folders are stored in different subdirectories.
    This is all fine, until her iPod erases itself, and is now no longer recognised by iTunes. In the processes advised for solving this situation (restore and reset etc) we erase my iPod (but have managed to restore music to if after re-installing the original software that came with it.)
    So now we are back to the stage of having her iPod not being recognised by iTunes. Please suggest solutions! Please also advise if there is a more sensible way of managing two iPods on one PC. Is it really as basic as having different playlists?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yep. Playlists will do it.

  • How do I get 3 ipods on one computer have their own library without having to sync with another one and erasing its content?

    So I have a computer that I use for my iPod and my list is the main library that stays on the computer along with any other music my mom buys from her account. Anytime that I want to add music to any of theres, a window pops up saying that I need to sync to the library and erase the existing one they have. I dont want to do that I just want to be able to add any music they want for it without it saying that. My moms can add any music under her account to hers it still goes on to mine but at least it goes to hers. When my dads is attached it asks that question like I said before. Any one know how to make them all seperate?

  • Can you have two iPods for one computer?

    I know nothing about iPods so please excuse me for this question that probably has an obvious answer. My sister has an iPod nano that she has been using with our computer for a long time. I just bought an iPod and was trying to set it up. So can I use her i tunes to put music on my ipod or how does it work? I am aware you are not supposed to steal music though. So what am I supposed to do?

    Yes, you can use 2 iPod with 1 computer quite easily.

  • HT1347 How do I run two libraries from one computer?

    How do I run two libraries from one computer? One library is on the computer's hard drive, the second library is on an external hard drive. The computer that had the external hard drive crashed and I need to fix the iTunes library on it. How can I do this without corrupting the library on my internal hard drive?

    Launch iTunes with the Shift key held down and either create a new library or choose the one on the external drive. Any rented movies downloaded from another computer won't play.

    Set up the second exactly the same way as you set up the first. If iTunes is already installed, it doesn't need to be installed again.

    Ok I have a mac computer and an ipod nano and everything works great, but my mom is now getting an ipod nano. Is there a way to have two ipods on my computer, where each ipod has it's own library and account so we don't have to share all of our music?

  • How do I use two devices on one computer?

    My son has a Nano, I have an iPod. Both Xmas gifts. We have different music likes (duh) so we don't want one big library feeding both devices. How do we get his music on his Nano and my music on my iPod?

  • Two ipods on one computer

    My daughter has an ipod and I'm getting a second ipod. I have separate user accounts and want to have separate itunes but access the same library. I've read the "How to use multiple ipods with one computer" and "Itunes How to share music between different accounts on the same computer".
    I copy the "iTunes Music Folder" only from the original user account that has all the music on it to the "\Documents and Settings\AllUsers.WINDOWS\Documents\My Music".
    I then Open iTunes, Edit, Preferences, Click Advanced and Navigate each iTunes account to the location of the iTunes Music folder.
    But the new account still doesn't show the music of the old account. I copied an album into my new account and thats all I ever see in there. I'm good at following directions so I don't believe I missed anything. I was a little confused at first about the "Important: Do not move the iTunes folder, the iTunes 4 Music Library file or the iTunes Library.xml file." (part of step 3) but moved only the "iTunes Music" folder.
    Sorry this is so long,
    Would appriciate any help

    Ok, so the iTunes music folder holds all the music. I copy or drag my iTunes folder and my Daughters iTunes folder from our separate user accounts to the shared music folder. Then open iTunes and steer my and my Daughters iTunes Music folder location to the same place.
    If she downloads new music I would have to open iTunes under my user account. Go file/add folder to library/ locate the new music on the shared music folder and that would bring something into my library file so I could see the new music on my iTunes.
    I guess what I started out to do was save memory space on my computer. Does all this do that?
    If it doesn’t I really don’t care anymore as long as I can copy her new music to my iTunes and vise versa.
    Thanks for the help
