How do you do home share with in different accounts on the same computer?

How do you homeshare within different log in accounts (and itunes accounts) within one computer?

Simply connect them.  One computer with one iTunes can manage multiple devices.  They're tracked by S/N but you might wish to assign them unique names so that you can track them yourself.
The only minor issue is app updating and purchases while on the computer.  It's necessary to log out and back in to the "correct" ID.  Much easier to do these things from the iPods.

  • How can I have two devices with separate iTunes accounts on the same computer without sharing libraries?

    I have an iPhone 3s and my sister has an iPhone 3.  We use them only as iPods.  We each have our own iTunes account, but we have to share a computer.  How can we both syn our devices without sharing our music and app libraries?

    The most reliable way would be to set up individual user accounts in WIndows. Then each of your iTunes libraries will be completely separate.
    Regards.

  • Can you share music between iTunes accounts on the same computer

    Can you share music between iTunes accounts on the same computer? My kids iPods are under my account now with all of our shared music but they want their own iTunes accounts. I would like to transfer the music and apps that they purchased under my account to their new accounts... Is this posible?

    Did you enable the display of system files and hidden files and folders?
    by the way, how can i stop this from happening another time.
    Make a backup!
    i had music there for over 6 years.
    Well you must have updated iTunes once or twice in that time. Do you have some sort of "tidying" app that is supposed to clean "unnecessary" files. If so perhaps it is too aggressive.

  • Can two peeps use iChat with different accounts on the same computer?

    What do I do to REMOVE an old AIM account and replace it with a new account in IChat?
    Can two peeps use iChat with different accounts in the same computer?
    (Actually, two people share a laptop, but one of us cannot use her AIM account cuz mine is in iChat already... And, when traveling, I have the computer - and I would like to use iChat on the computer...)

    In iChat 4 you can have more than one AIM Valid name logged in at once.
    AIM valid = AIM, @mac.com or a MobileMe name.
    What you are then stuck with is that iChat is linked to one Buddy Picture and The one Mac User Account's Address Book which may or may not have Full Names, emails details, or a Nickname in iChat 4 linked to the Screen Names.
    Whilst it does let you both log in whilst using one Mac User Account there are drawbacks about who uses the keyboard and reading meesages from the other persons Buddies.

  • HT3819 How do I share music between different users on the same computer?

    I understand Home Sharing helps me share music across different computers.  How do I share between different users on the same computer?  We have a few instances of iTunes on a single computer and have to download from the same CD each time.  I must be doing something wrong - seems crazy to have several copies of the same song on one hard-drive when Home Share allows for sharing across computers - how do I share within the same computer?  Please outline specific steps.  THANKS.

    Hello Whigged-out,
    It sounds like you would like to share one library between two different users on your iMac.  I found an article with steps you can take to accomplish this:

  • HT3819 Will home sharing work with 2 itunes accounts on the same computer?

    My husband and I share a laptop.  Can we use Home Sharing to share music with each other? I have an account for each of us on iCloud and the computer has us each set up as users. 

    No, home sharing will not work for two different users on the same computer on a Windows based system as it requires iTunes running.  It is not possible in Windows for both users to be running iTunes at the same time.
    Instead, simply use the File > Add Files/Folder option in iTunes to add the content you want to your iTunesLibrary.  Do the same for your husbands iTunesLibrary under his user.

  • How do I share music between user accounts on the same computer?

    My wife and I have separate user accounts on the same MacBook Pro so that we can both sync our phones to this computer. My account is the primary user account, and my iTunes library is stored in this account. My wife would like to put music on her iPhone so she can run, but I can't seem to access the music library thru her account. I know the files are all on the hard drive regardless, so I just need to know how I can make iTunes on my wife's account access the library that's there. I've tried the steps I could find on Apple's website, but I can't seem to make it work. I'm running the latest versions of everything - even tho the post says I'm running 10.9.1, I'm actually running 10.9.4

    To give other users read-only access to your iTunes library, use the Sharing features of iTunes. Sharing works over the local network as well as on the same computer. See the built-in help for details.
    If you want to give full read/write access to more than one user, see the support article linked below.

    There is a way to share the library without moving it to a secondary volume. If you really need to do that, ask for instructions.

  • Can I home share two separate itunes accounts to the same homeshare?

    I would like to home share two separate iTunes accounts we have at the house.  Has anyone done that? Or am I forced to consolidate to one iTunes account which only allows 5 authorized computers?

    Yes you can set up homesharing on more than one library to be shared with other devices, just use the same homesharing ID and password on all of them.

  • Sharing Itunes with a different user on the same computer...

  • Can we share apps on two ipads using two different accounts on the same computer?

    I just got and iPad 2 and am giving my wife my old iPad. She has a separate itune account for her ipod. Can we share apps on the two iPads with two different accounts running on the same computer?

    Dear Dah,
    I now have two iPads, which I also (need to) have separate AppleID's for. I understand I can share apps between them if I authorize iTunes on my iMac with both ID's, but I am not quite sure about the correct way to do that. I already have the iMac authorized for AppleID#1. If I go into iTunes and click on Store/Authorize this Computer... and enter my AppleID#2 information into Account name and Password boxes, does this authorize my iMac's iTunes for BOTH ID's or does it just change the authorization from ID#1 to ID#2?
    If the former is correct, I understand the way to proceed is to xync up both iPads to iTunes and then I can drag and drop apps from one iPad's library listings to the other, right?
    If this is not the correct way to get dual authorizations, what is?
    Thanks!
