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

    Can I allow a different logged in user to gain access to my music library on the same computer? If so...How the heck do you do it? I tried something once and thought I lost my whole library!
    Thanks.

    The following document may be of some assistance with that:

  • ITunes 11 previously imported a video file, which I loaded on to my iPod Nano, but I removed the file from the iTunes library and now it won't (re-)import the same video. Any thoughts on why not?

    iTunes 11 previously imported a video file, which I loaded on to my iPod Nano, but I removed the file from the iTunes library and now it won't (re-)import the same video.
    I'm using 2 PCs, each with video files (.MP4) on their respective hard drives, and also one external drive with other video files on that I move between the two devices.
    iTunes on one PC will (sometimes!) let me add video content from the external hard drive, which is clearly iTunes-compatible, because I can then copy it over to my iPod Nano. On the other PC, I couldn't load that same video from the external hard drive. But if I copied that same video on to the PC's internal hard drive first, then iTunes would let me import it. That was yesterday - now iTunes is refusing to load any files from the internal or external hard drive(s).
    Any thoughts or suggestions, please?

    So I tried copying the files from the external hard drive to a USB drive. I could import the video files from the USB drive!
    So then I tried importing the same files on to my PC's internal hard drive again. I could import the video files from the internal hard drive!
    So then I tried to import the very same files that failed to load on the very same PC previously. I could now import them!
    I still can't import from the external hard drive directly, though.
    I really don't think I like the process of importing things into iTunes very much... any suggestions on what's causing any of this behaviour would be very interesting.

  • 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.

  • How do I sync two ipods with two different IDs on the same computer?

    How do I sync two ipods with two different IDs on the same 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 do I share iTunes Library and Playlists

    I had a desktop mac with 2 login accounts, we enjoy having our own spaces, mail, desktops, prefs, etc.. but we do not wish to duplicate nor keep either one out of our digital assests, ie music, photos, etc..
    I used to have an alias to the other users itunes library and all was fine. He is the predominant music purchaser in the house and I have full access to even his latest purchases.
    Upon buying a new machine, 1.66GHz duo core mini we seem to have lost this ability. If I make an alias now, when I launch itunes it says cannot find the folder itunes, it seems to now know its a folder it must find and not an alias to one. I have read ideas about sharing and fast user switching, not really the solution I am looking for or used to have. I think many couples find themselves in a similar situation. Seems silly that we now have to be logged in one side to play/stream music in the house and make sure we are logged into the other side whenever we connect the digital camera.
    Any ideas would be appreciated.

  • How do I delete itunes library and move library from old windows machine to

    My daughter bought a new macbook and would like to move her itunes library from the windows machine to the mac. I copied it to the mac and moved the existing itunes folder to the trash. By the way, she got 3 free downloads from Apple and they were in the library I moved to the trash bin. I then moved the backup folder to the location of the itunes folder I had deleted. When I open itunes, it sees the 3 songs in the deleted folder. How do I get itunes to recognoze the new itunes folder?

    Thank you. As I understand it, if the original iTunes folder had never been populated, we would have been able to move the library exported from Windows into iTunes and preserve the playlists. Because my daughter downloaded 3 songs she does not even like, we have no way of preserving playlists? There must be some way to remove all connections to the first library. Is it possible remove the iTunes application and then either re-install it from the original disks or else download it. I know you can download iTunes for Windows, not sure if it is there for Macs. My guess is that if she starts itunes from scratch, there would be no references to the intial DB and we could then move in the folder from Windows without a problem.

  • HT4914 Can I use iTunes match to share my iTunes library across different users on the same computer?

    I'm a teacher and I use my MBP in school and, while I've not had any issues with students looking through my computer, I'd like to use a seperate 'school' user just in case.  I need to have access to my iTunes library and I tried moving it to a shared folder but, possibly because of the size of my library, itdoesn't seem to work.  Is there a way I can use iTunes match to enable my 'school' user to access my library in the same way I can with my iPhone?

    Hey darkmavis86,
    Great question, and welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    I believe you would benefit from the following article:
    iTunes: How to share music between different accounts on a single computer
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1203
    However, if you do decide to use iTunes Match the answer to your question is "Yes". iTunes Match can be used to "sync" your iTunes library across multiple devices / computers / users.
    Thanks,

  • How can I share the same music but separate calendars and address book for 2 users on the same computer?

    Can anyone help to answer if I can share the same music account on itunes but still maintain separate calendars and address books on the same computer?

    Make sure each user has their own computer login.
    Copy the entire /Music/iTunes/ folder to /Users/Shared.
    Hold Option and launch iTunes.
    Select Choose library and select /Users/Shared/iTunes/ folder.
    Quit iTunes and log into other user.
    Hold Option and launch iTunes.
    Select Choose library and select /Users/Shared/iTunes/ folder.
    That is all you need to do.
    Any changes in iTunes by one will be seen by all others (since you are using the same library).
    All users will have their own Contacts & Calendars and all other info.
    If you are using Fast User switching, you must quit iTunes before switching users if others wish to use iTunes.

  • 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!

  • Can iTunes split content/settings to two different devises on the same computer?

    My friend has an iPod and has set up iTunes with his settings and songs. I am getting an iDevice, we share the same computer but we do not want the same things on our devices. Can iTunes have different settings for different devices? What can we do? FYI I am on Windows 7 (if that makes any difference).

    Yes, in terms of multiple devices but I doubt an iPad air be able to sync to something as old as iTunes9.  Usually iOS devices need the version of iTunes that was current at the time the device was sold.  I don't know all the system requirements by heart but I strongly suspect if you truly have a G5 (PPC) computer there is no way you will get a newer device to work with it.  To do so would require a system upgrade higher than you can do on a G5.
