    Default I tunes help needed

    About to buy karen an i pod for her birthday. I have one already and we share the same computer. Now is it possible to have 2 seperate i tunes libraries on the pc, or will both the i pods need to use the same one?

    From what I know of it, I believe you'll either have to share the same library, or have another pc/laptop to run another copy of itunes and another ipod...

    If you take her one and plug it into your computer, I think it will just sync itself with that one automatically...

    I may be wrong though, as I don't acutally own one, just going off what I remember about it...

    actually you will use the same library but you can set up separate playlists. For example.....

    you can have all yours on a playlist called Graeme with your songs on.

    and the missus can have a playlist calle Graeme's Missus with her songs on.

    then the songs dont get mixed up.

    you can decline the auto sync when it pops up, then select only to sync with the required playlist.

    My girlfriend and I use 2 ipods on the same itunes and computer, we just have it set so there is no automatic sync of the music library or the videos, photos etc.

    It does mean I have to manually copy music to my ipod but it does mean I don't have her 80's rubbish on mine and she doesn't have my dance rubbish on hers !!!!

    'cos we do the same too.

    Just remember to swat up on creating 'smart' playlists. The big key is to create a smartlist for all the songs that are already in your iTunes and give them a name. When your missus wants to rip or down load new songs she will need to store them under her own smartlist. As thegoldebullet as stated, all songs will be stored in one master library.

    IIRC iTunes only downloads the files that are ticked so just tick the ones you want or set up separate folders
