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.

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.

The problem is, i want to put music from my laptop onto my apple ipod 4GB a1051, how do i do that please?

The following information has come directly from the apple support web site.

Adding Content Automatically or Manually
There are two ways to add content to iPod nano: ? Automatic syncing: When you connect iPod nano to your computer, iPod nano is automatically updated to match the items in your iTunes library. You can sync all your songs, playlists, videos, and podcasts, or, if your entire iTunes library doesn’t fit on iPod nano, you can sync only selected items. You can sync iPod nano automatically with only one computer at a time. ? Manually managing iPod nano: When you connect iPod nano, you can drag items individually to iPod nano and delete them individually from iPod nano. You can add songs from more than one computer without erasing songs from iPod nano. When you manage music yourself, you must always eject iPod nano from iTunes before you disconnect it.

The following URL will bring you to the iPod Nano manual. For more information on setting up you iPod see chapter 2: Setting up iPod Nano

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

iTunes is free and is the best software available for use with iPods. Below I have included several intruction (guides) for you just in case you are a new user and need the information. If you have any difficulties past here please do let me know. I have a well of information on iTunes/iPods. :)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adding content on your computer to iTunes
iTunes lets you add digital audio and video files on your computer directly to your iTunes library. You can add audio files that are in AAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or (.aa) format. If you have unprotected WMA content, iTunes for Windows can convert these files to one of these formats. Video content in QuickTime or MPEG-4 format can also be added to iTunes. To learn how to add these files to iTunes follow the steps below.
Open iTunes From the File menu, choose one of the following choices: Mac Add to Library Windows Add File to Library Add Folder to Library Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add If iTunes is set to "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library", iTunes will copy all content that is added to the iTunes library to the iTunes Music folder. Then adjust this setting or change the location of this folder, go to the Advanced tab in iTunes preferences.
