<p>Many people have more than one iPod or iPhone. Some families
have several members who all have their own separate iPod / iPhone. The iTunes
software is configured to synchronize content with one player, but the software
can be configured to synchronize multiple players on one computer. To
synchronize multiple players, you can set iTunes to a different library for
each user to create. This will allow each user their own music and video
libraries, which he then syncs with your players to adjust. Or you can set
iTunes to share it with the same content for each user. <br />
<p>Configure multiple libraries on the same computer <br />
<p>1. Hold down the "Shift" key on your keyboard when
you open iTunes on your Start menu. <br />
<p>2. Select "Create Library" dialog box that
appears. <br />
<p>3. Name the new library or an alternative that opens (for
example, the library iPod Jake). <br />
<p>4. Select "Edit" in the iTunes interface, and
select "Preferences". <br />
<p>5. Click the "Advanced" tab and check "Copy
files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library." Press
"OK". <br />
<p>6. Add specific files to iTunes library. Click the
"File" menu and select 'Add File to Library ". After you have
added your particular iTunes library, connect your iPod / iPhone to your
computer with the USB cable and download files manually, or auto-sync. <br />
<p>Share iTunes library content with multiple users <br />
<p>1. Quit iTunes, find the iTunes library folder on your
computer. Click the Start menu and select "Computer." Double click on
the "C" drive. Select "Users". Click your username. If no
username is set, click on "owner." Select "My Music".
Double click on the "iTunes" folder. <br />
<p>2. Drag the folder to a public place. For example, you can
drag the folder from the current location and put it in the Public Music
folder. To find this folder, click again on "Users" and select
"audience." The Music folder in Public. <br />
<p>3. Open iTunes and select "Preferences" from the
Edit menu. <br />
<p>4. Select "Advanced". <br />
<p>5. Click "Change." Browse and select the current
location of the iTunes folder in the "Change Music Folder Location"
window. <br />
<p>6. Click "OK". <br />
Importing Content to Zune Software Zune software provides several options to import content. By default, Zune software automatically imports content that is downloaded to the following folders:
Zune software monitors these folders for the current user as well as the folders designated for All Users. When content is downloaded to any of these folders, it is automatically imported to the Zune media library. Zune users can also add a new folder to the list of folders that Zune software monitors, or they can manually drag and drop content from any folder to the Zune media library.
Other options are RealPlayer (has a iPod plug-in), and a relatively new program which appears promising called Songbird. Both of these two programs are popular for transferring music to iPods without the use of Apple iTunes.
You need to set your iPod to update manually, instead of syncing automatically when you plug it into the computer.
To do this, plug your iPod into your computer, and on the iPod info screen that pops up in iTunes when your iPod is connected, click "Manually Manage Files." You'll now have to click and drag your songs from your library to your iPod, but now you can also play songs on your computer directly from your iPod and delete songs from your library without deleting them from your iPod at the same time.
Hey jindas316, According to information provided by Apple, any content that you download to your iPod from the iTunes Wi-Fi Music store is automatically copied to your iTunes library when you next sync your iPod to your computer. You generally do not need a remote connection to your home computer or iTunes running in order to do this, so you should only need to have access to a Wi-Fi connection to download iTunes content. Please keep in mind though that you may not have access to the same range of iTunes content through the Wi-Fi store as you do through your home computer. Movies, podcasts and TV shows are normally only available through the full iTunes store accessible on home computers. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.
if you mean like download music from your computer to your ipod you will need iTune to do this....install iTune and export your music to its library...then insert your ipod to the usb port of your computer and let iTune detect it...then just drag and drop the music form your library to your ipod
hello blair,I Have my own I-pod so I hope this will re asure you. First I think you should restore your I tunes as long as your brother has your songs too. Then ask him to create a CD of all your songs, which is not hard at all. then take the CD and open I-Tunes. Place the CD into your hard drive and I-Tunes should pick up the CD. Then download the content of the CD onto I-Tunes. You Will Now have all your songs on I-Tunes like before. Now plug in your I-Pod and continue like It's the first time you have pluged in your i-pod! hope this helps! Rosebetts xxx
