Two different iPods sharing same computer and iTunes

How do I set up a second iPod on the same computer but keep them separate?

Plug the new iPod into your computer and go through the iPod Setup Assistant when prompted. If you want to transfer different music to each iPod, try the options in this article.

  • I have two iphones using the same computer and I can only find a backup for my iphone and not my girlfriends.  She uses itunes a lot more often then I do but cant find it

    I have two iphones using the same computer and I can only find a backup for my iphone and not my girlfriends.  She uses itunes a lot more often then I do but cant find it.  Really need some help.  Shouldnt her apps and details be saved online in the itunes store?  Even her apps wont appear

    If you create an Apple ID for your daughter, signing out of the existing Apple ID with the iTunes & App Store on her iPhone will not change anything on your iPhone.
    All apps include DRM protection which is tied to the Apple ID that was used to download the apps.
    If she starts using her Apple ID to download apps, when there is an app update for an app on her iPhone that was downloaded with the current shared Apple ID, she will need to use that Apple ID and password to download the app updates.

  • Can two people with their own iPhones use the same computer and iTunes?

    Can two people with their own iPhones use the same computer and iTunes?

    Yes. My wife and I each have our own Apple ID and used the same computer to sync our phones with iTunes. The best way to do this is set up separate user accounts on the computer. If you are logged in to your account on the computer and your wife wants to sync here phone, you would log out and she would log in. These keeps all your stuff separate and avoids a ton of confusion.

  • My sister and I each have an ipod touch. We use the same computer and itunes but each have our own apple id. Everytime I want to update an app on my ipod it asks for my sisters apple id login!? help!

    My sister and I each have an ipod touch. We use the same computer and itunes but each have our own apple id. Everytime I want to update an app on my ipod it asks for my sisters apple id login!? help!

    When it asks for another ID on an App Update, it means that the application was purchased under your sister's ID but downloaded to your device from the iTunes library that you share. Even though you both have your own Apple IDs, since you are syncing on the same computer, you are using the same iTunes library.
    Whoever purchased the app is forever tied to it, and you can only have one version of a particular app in a single library....
    Does that make sense?

  • 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.

  • Can I backup two iPhones to the same laptop and iTunes account?

    Is it possible to backup and sync an iPhone 4 and an iPhone 3Gs to the same laptop and iTunes account?  My wife and I both have iPhones.  Her laptop just crashed, so we only have one laptop to use as a back up / sync now.

    Yes, iTunes will maintain separate backups for each device. Note, however, ALL iTunes content, presently on your wife's phone will be erased when you first sync it to your computer. So, you need to get all of that content into your iTunes library first. Read here about your choices for managing multiple devices on one computer:

    if i have 2 ipods how do i get all of my music to both of them and can u even connect 2 ipods to the same computer????

    If you want all your music on both ipods, just plug them both in and iTunes should automatically sync them. If you want different music on each, then read this: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300432 or set them both for manual update in the iPod preferences.

  • How can I use iTunes Match on two different accounts on same computer?

    What happens if I enable iTunes Match in a different account on my Mac Pro.  I am already set up with iTunes Match because I was travelling and I wanted to use my iPhone on the road but not fill up the storage.  I turned off iTunes Match in my primary account (user of course) becuase I have all the "original" music in that library. I have another account though that I would also like to be able to use just some of the music at different times.  I have a separate account for using Final Cut Pro X.
    So, would ITunes Match be the solution I am looking for?  iCloud status gives me all of the music I have purchased but it is short about 800 music files.

    I know that.  When I talk of accounts I mean user accounts on the Mac Pro.  I am looking for a solution that wil keep iTunes libraries, playlist, etc insync between two user accounts on the computer.

  • HT2498 If I use camera window to download my pictures to my computer, and then I copy and paste the pictures to iPhoto. Would I be ending up having the same pictures in two different files in my computer, and so wasting space in my hard drive?

    I recently bought a canon camera. The instructions of the camara recommend to use the canon software (camara window) to download pictures to my computer.  I would like to have my pictures in i-photo because it syncs them to my ipad.
    I want to download the pictures from my camera to camara window, and then drag and drop the pictures to i-photo. If I keep my pictures in both programs would I be wasting space in my computer hard drive by having the same pictures in two different files?

    Yes.
    Ignore the Canon software. It gains you nothing and adds complexity. Just use iPhoto for the lot.

  • Using more than one ipod on one computer and itunes

    I have a iPod mini but share a computer with my sister who just got the lastest nano. Can I add her ipod to my computer while my mini is already on there? Can we share the itunes and import the same songs to our ipods? How does it work? I use Windows XP but don't want to go through the hassel of have to Itunes running off one computer.
    Thanks so much for any help!!!!!!

    Don't know what an iPod mini is. To answer your question about sharing computer. You can use the same library if you want. THere are many ways to do that just make sure to not have them both plugged in at the same time.
    Te easiest way to share would be to use one user account. Both iPOds would get the same libary and music.
    The next way is to have two different user accounts. Have the music in a shared folder and you can both use the dame music files but can have different playlist and ratings.
