Hey all,

Can you use two iPods on the one PC? I've heard there can be problems......

Thanks in advance.

Does it mean that the songs from both ipod's are all mixed together on itunes or is there a way to keep them seperate? I definately don't want some of her stuff on mine.

it can make life a little more difficult because you cannot use all the syncing functions if you both have separate songs on your iPod's

You just have to set your ipod not to automatically sync, but the itunes library itself would still be a mixture of all your music. If you split your music into his and hers playlists you could see just your own music in itunes. To avoid all this you could have separate logins for the computer but that creates different issues altogether.

I have had three iPods on my iTunes without any issues (other than XP seeing the iPod as a disk and not a device - search the Help index if you get this problem, the solution lies in manually mapping the iPod to a drive letter).

In order to separate the music on each iPod you shall need to "manually manage" your music (ie. disable synching) and drag and drop what you want from the common library on your PC to each iPod. Otherwise you can, as YellowJacket says, create a playlist for each of you and you can enable synching in this instance - remember to set the synch parameters to your respective playlist/s only.
