How do I connect multiple iPods to One Computer

<p>Suppose you have more than one iPod that you want your computer. Or maybe you have two people with the same computer, otherwise synchronize their iPods. There are a few different ways to go about it. Windows and Mac OS you can run multiple iPods with USB cables and your music library to open. But you can use these methods to various media files to synchronize multiple iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Create separate iTunes libraries <br /> <p>1. Keep the "Options" key while you open iTunes on your computer, if you use a Mac the same way, hold down the "Shift" key while you open iTunes and Windows. This will be a new dialog. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Click on "Create Library". Name the new library and save it. iTunes will open this new library you created. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Open "Preferences". Do this by selecting "iTunes" and "Preferences" on a Mac, and "Edit" Preferences "in Windows. Click the" tab "Advanced. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Check the box next to "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library." Click "OK". This will ensure duplicate files are not included in your new library. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Add the files you want to add in your new library, which are the files you want to go to your second iPod. To do this, drag the files from your hard drive in iTunes. You can also choose "File" and "Add to Library". Add to your library until you see the way you want. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Connect your iPod to your computer via USB. Sync your iPod to your iTunes library. Quit iTunes once the synchronization is complete. <br /> <p><br /> <p>7. Repeat step 1 to re-open iTunes. Select "Choose Library". Now your original or the new library you created to switch between the music from your iPod library. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Create separate user accounts <br /> <p>1. On a Mac, select the Apple menu. Choose System Preferences. Select the "View" menu and select "Accounts." Click the "+" to create a new user. Connect your iPod to iTunes and sync with this user. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. In Windows, click the "Start" button. Go to the Control Panel. In "User Accounts and Family Safety", select "Add or Remove User Accounts." Click on "Create a new account." Connect your iPod to iTunes and sync with this user. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log off your account and to switch between users. This way you can sync your iPod separately for each user. It can be useful if multiple users have different tastes in music. They may have their iTunes libraries and iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Sync iPods with different playlists <br /> <p>1. Open "iTunes". Create multiple playlists to be synchronized with each of their iPods. For example, you can create a playlist of workout you just upload to your iPod nano, in turn, allows your entire library on your iPod touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your iPod via a USB cable. You can do one at a time or simultaneously on a Mac Windows does not support synchronization of more than one iPod at a time. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click on the first iPod in "Devices". In the "Music", select "Sync Music." Select "Selected playlists, artists and genres." <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click Apply. This will start the synchronization process. Repeat this process for the other iPods. <br />

Can I sync two different iPods to the same computer

1. The automatic settings in iTunes and iPods will not allow you to sync two iPods with one version of iTunes or sync an iPod with multiple versions of iTunes without the content being completely erased from the iPod. 2. This can be very aggravating if more than one person in your household owns an iPod or you want to add music from a friend's iTunes library to your iPod. Changing the iPod settings through iTunes will let you sync more than one iPod on one computer.

3. Open the iTunes software. Connect one of the two iPods to a USB port found on the one computer. If a small window opens in iTunes after the program recognizes the iPod, you can close the window by clicking "No" or the "X" in the window. 4. Click the name of the iPod positioned under "Devices" on the left side of iTunes. When you highlight the iPod name, a variety of tabs will appear at the top of the iTunes program. 5. Choose the "Summary" tab and options will be listed in the middle of the program. Select the option labeled "Manually manage music and videos." If a window opens, click "OK." 6. Click "Apply" in the bottom right corner to change the settings on the plugged in iPod. Leave iTunes open. Repeat steps 2-6 with the second iPod you want to sync on the one computer.

    Why wnt imesh recongnize my iphone

    iMesh doesnt support iPods in all instances, there subscription music is specifically for "PlaysForSure" DRM devices only, iPods do not support this DRM.

    From the Online Support:

    You have an iMesh ToGo subscription which allows you to download your premium music to your portable device (Compatible with portable devices, not with IPods).

    Hi there
    Wow! That's awesome! Well done!!
    The problem, based on the fact that it is happening identically to 2 different ipods, is definitely your 'boom box'.
    Check the main usb connector of the boom box

    All the best

    Set your computer up so that you & your brother have different user accounts on your computer. This can be done via parental controls in windows Vista & xp (parental controls> create user). Once you do that, download the most recent itunes. You'll see itunes on both user accounts

    Be sure to back up your music or you'll both have to create new libraries. When you sync your ipods, itunes will automatically recognizw which model ipod you have & update the software accordingly. I have my wife, both kids & I have all our ipods synced on 1 computer this way (Gen 3 30 gig, 2 gen 2 nanos, & a shuffle).
