How to work 2 different ipods on same computer

I am trying to use both my daughter's mini and my nano on the same computer. I can get my library (nano), but not her library (mini) even thought the mini does show up. How can I get her library and not my library?

Hello Nancy,
I'm not sure if I'm interpreting your post correctly and whether you are having difficulty connecting the mini or in creating a library. However there are a couple of methods for using more than one iPod on a single computer. Have a look at this article and go for whichever you feel suits your needs best: How To Use Multiple iPods with One Computer Hopefully this answers your question.

  • Multiple users with different Ipods on same computer

    My household has one general computer that is used by myself and my two teenage daughters. We don't use separate logins because it is used mostly to just go online, check our email, and use Itunes along with updating our Ipods. This works fine for us except that we have different Ipods. My girls have the Ipod Mini's and I have the Ipod (with video screen).
    My question is this: Can one computer (running WinXPProSp2)authorize two different Ipods under the same user name? Also, can two (or three) different Ipods be "authorized" on the same computer?

    Yes, your not really authorizing ipods, you just authorize a PC to play songs you buy from iTUnes. Once its authorized all ipods can play the song that connect to it.
    You can separate the music that is loaded to each iPod (Like your music only added to your ipod and your girls ipods only updating there music to there ipods) By creating your own playlist and setting the ipod to update them. This is covered more here

  • How do i sync different ipods on same itunes/computer?

    I have an ipod classic and shuffle. Shuffle was purchased afterwards.
    I managed to create a separate library and added songfs into Shuffle's library. Now i'd like to sync, but forgot how
    to bring up each account, but can't open that library. Little help>???? Thanks.

    With iTunes, you can only run 1 library at a time. Libra allows you to create more than one library and switch between them. You will have to use something like Libra to import your other library, the one that you create for your shuffle and have libra switch to it. The problem that you will run into is that if you switch to your other library, when you plug in your ipod classic, iTunes will tell you that it was synced with another library and you will need to erase and sync. If you want to sync both ipods to the same library, 1 of the them will need to be erased and synced.

  • Need help to see if I can use 2 different Ipods on same computer....

    I recently updated from my Ipod shuffel to a Nano. The software automatically updated my computer when I pluged in the new one, but I have given my son my shuffle and have not been able to get it to work on my home computer, can I update his on my computer that I use for my nano?

    The ca-55 was the only adaptor to convert a car-k91 to pop port, you can not change it to another type of connector, you will have to buy a new kit.

  • How to Maintain two different prices for same material in different qty?

    Dear all,
    How to maintain two different prices for same material in different batch quantities in purchase order(ie.,info record)?
    (Vendor is supplying quantities in 2 different batches & also in different prices)
    Expecting valuable reply.

    In a PO you can create 2 items, and each item can be maintained with a different price in the conditions.
    In info record it is not possible to have different prices for the same period, except for scales.
    so if you have a price of e.g. 2 USD for 1000 kg and 1,90 USD for 2000 kg then you can maintain this in scales, but you still have to have 2 items in the PO so that each one can individually find its price.
    Alternative you can create contracts (as well with more than one item) to reflect the different prices and batches.

  • How do i use 2 IPODs on 1 computer

    how do i use 2 IPODs on 1 computer. We had 1 working fine. We created a new account for the second one and when we sign in on the new account it shows all the songs from the old account. How does the computer know which IPOD to account goes with which IPOD. It did not ask us for any additional info.

    The iPod nor the computer keeps track of which iPod goes to which account. However, once you have synced the iPod with the different library, you will be prompted with a message that begins with, "This iPod is linked to a different library do you want to sync it now..."
    Did you copy the iTunes folder for both accounts.

  • Homesharing - struggling with different accounts on same computer

    Hi - hope somebody can help with this. Could you talk me through how to set up homesharing on the same computer for 3 different accounts (me, wife and son - the latter with parental controls). I've tried turning on the homesharing function and the "look for homesharing" but am having no joy. would be grateful for any help. Thanks.

    I have been able to share my media using Home Sharing on different accounts on the same computer. All you need to do is make sure you use the same Apple ID for all of the accounts when you set up homesharing and have all of the accounts logged into at the same time. Then you will be able to transfer media back and forth.

  • My computer died. I do not want to loose one video on my iPod, how can I  use the iPod  on another computer? Please help!

    please advise how I can put my iPod on another computer, my old one died a slow death.  There is one short video on my iPod that can't  be replaced.

    - What is the source of the videos? If taken by the iPod you can transfer them to the new computer by:
    Copying personal photos and videos from iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your computer
    - If they were iTunes purchases by:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer
    - If they were synced to the iPod and not iTunes purchases then you need a third-party program like TouchCopy or PhoneView.
