Hi,

unfortunately not,

but a useful suggestion could be backuping your personal files to a folder on your hard disk and before plugging your ipod on the pc just copy paste the files from the folder of your hard disk to the itunes,
afterwards plug the ipod on your pc and is ready,

Simplier, make seperate folders on your hard disk.
Whatevers you want to be on the ipod put it on your own folder.
In this way your files will be safe from making the mistake to synch with your daugther's files. Your files will always be on your hard disk and you will always have the opportunity to put them back on ipod by copy-pasting them to itunes.
The itunes programme will be just a way to transfer your folder's file on your ipod.

Example:

"daughter's folder"

If your daughter wants to plug her ipod just erase unwanted (father's files) files from itunes, and copy paste her folder (which stays on the hard disk) on the itunes. Then synch.

"father's folder"

If you want to plug your ipod erase unwanted (daughter's files) files from itunes, and copy paste your folder (which stays on the hard disk) on the itunes. Then sync.


Trust me, this procedure may seem boring and time-wasting but as soon as you understand the philosophy of this procedure you will love it.
This way of handlig ipod is good as well for preventing from losing your files by mistake because your files will always be on your hard disk!

Hope i helped!
Looking forward to hearing from you for further assistance!

How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano?
IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.


Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel.
2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program.
3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist.
4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play.
5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music." Click "Select playlists, artists and genres" and select the playlist you created that contains the songs you want to upload. Click "Apply" to automatically sync and download the songs to your iPod Nano.
6Click the "Eject" button and disconnect your iPod from the computer.

Tips & Warnings
Click "Music Store" if you want to purchase a music file. Search for the song on the iTunes store and download it to the iTunes library.

I just got an ipod nano and plugged it in to the computer and it started downloading all songs from my itunes library. i didn't want all the songs on the ipod. is there a way to remove songs from my ipod...


Connect you ipod back up, and go to it in itunes. One of the options should be "Manually manage my music." If you click that, you will have to drag music on and off of your iPod. Alternatively, there is an option called "sync only checked items," it will only sync the items that have the little check next to them.

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

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPod_nano_5th_gen_UserGuide.pdf

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

Open iTunes (without iPod connected). Create a new playlist and copy songs you want on your iPod into that list. Next connect your iPod. Once iTunes recognizes your iPod then go to the music tab and click on 'sync playlist only' and chose the new playlist that you created. Click sync. Only the songs in your new playlist should be copied to your iPod.

Apple Ipod isnt recognized on computer


You can only sync one ipod with one computer so if you put music on it already it will only work with the original computer you synced it with. Same with ANY ipod.

How to reset an ipod nano


Your iPod syncs the songs in your iTunes library every time you plug it into your computer, adding/removing songs is only a matter of adding/deleting them from your library and re-syncing your iPod.

Changed pc and new pc cannot work with ipod


You can download a developers version, not the final product of Songbird. It works just like itunes, but less problematic. It will allow you to "mount" the ipod as a disk, then you can save, the songs to your PC. It will ask you if you want to sync with it, just say no and you will be able to view the contents. I didnt make Songbird, I have just used it recently for the same problem. Best of Luck.
