All you need to do is create a playlist for your wife then when she plugs her ipod in, click on her ipod image and another screen will open, choose the music tab and select sync music with playlistr, and choose the playlist that you have created for her ipod.

The exclamation mark next to a title in iTunes means that iTunes
cannot locate the song associated with that title (original file cannot
be found). The cause for this is an incorrect setting of iTunes
preferences when copying iPod songs.
Before copying your iPod songs, setup your iTunes preferences as
Open iTunes preferences (in the Edit menu)
Select the Advanced tab.
Make sure the box next to "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when
adding to library" is checked.
Try to transfer them from your computer and dont copy from one playlist to another..
Also make sure that you transfer the songs from one to another ipod using the same computer.. Maybe this is the problem
Connect iPod to computer.
Open up iTunes.
Click on the icon on the left sidebar of iTunes that says "iPod Nano".
Click on the Music tab.
You will notice that at least one folder has been set to "Sync music" - the songs in these folders will be automatically loaded onto your iPod everytime you connect it to your computer. I would suggest separating the music folders that you use and the folders that your wife uses on your computer itself. Then, you can sync only the songs in your own personal folder.
Alternatively, you can disable the "Sync Music" option altogether by unchecking the box.
Whichever choice you make, you will now need to manually go in and delete the songs you don't want.
You can do this by clicking on the Music icon underneath the iPod Nano icon on the left sidebar of iTunes. Find a song you no longer want on your iPod, right-click the song, and select delete.
Connect your ipod to pc.Go to my computer.Open the icon of your ipod.Go to tools on the top and then click folder options.A dialog box will open.Click on view.And select "show hidden files and folders".With this method you can copy and play songs in your ipod without using i tunes.Copy and paste the songs.I hope this method will be helpful for you.You should buy a charger for your ipod.
After your iPod shows up in iTunes, highlight your iPod if it doesn't automatically come up. Then on the first tab labeled Summary, under Options click the box that says Manually manage music and videos. Then you can highlight all the songs in your library that you want to add to your iPod and drag them onto the iPod. The files already on your iPod will not be overwritten.
