Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

1 Answer

Why can't we have two separate accounts?

My husband and I both have ipods but, he set his up first. Now we are sharing an account somehow and everytime one of us edits the other's playlist or anything it does it to both ipods? Why can't we just have separate accounts on one computer? What's the point of each having our own if we have to share the songs on it?

Do you have your iPod set so it automatically sync's all music or certain playlists? If that's so, try changing that. When you plug in your iPod, click on it, then click on the tab on the top of that page that says music and uncheck the boxes that say sync music. Im not sure if this will help or not.

Hi. I have my own iPod and two of my young kids kids received new iPod shuffles for Christmas. Should I set up two new accounts, one for each of them, with their own info? Do i use my own Apple id to...


I would have a account for yourself and ONE account for your kids. If your kids used your account, they could possibly buy stuff using your credit card information if you have one registered with your account. The reason I say one account for yours kids is because you can manage it easier with one. Both kids can buy songs from that same account if needed. You can set parental controls in the kids account as well.
Good luck :)

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 />

My husband put some music on my ipod nano about 1 month ago. when he went back to add music to my ipod it locked him out and will not let him do anything. how do i fix this


You need to restore your Ipod .... This will erase all content on the ipod. The ipod can only be synced to one itunes account. This is a pretty easy fix for you. Your ipod is a nano so the max space you can have is 16gb. Just connect your ipod to your itunes account erase and sync it with your library you will need to add any additional songs from your husbands library to your library if you want them on your player ... or if your spouse has all the music that you want on your ipod just sync the nano to his library hope this helps
