Are there any known issues when sync'ing multiple iPods to a single computer?

I have an 3G iPod and recently got an iPod Shuffle (for working out, biking, etc...).

Everything seems to be working just fine and they're playing nicely together sync'ing to the same computer, but just wondering if there's some gotcha I'm overlooking.

I can't imagine that Apple would be dissappointed that people own multiple iPods...

Thx,

No problems whatsoever in over a month of iPod/Shuffle use for me.

Works with any number of iPods. It is the iPods that are "locked" to a single library, not the iTunes library being locked to a single iPod.

I have an iPod photo & just purchased an iPod photo for my wife and wanted to know:


Do I have to do anything in particular for my iMac to recognize the second iPod (i.e.: do I just restore the new iPod to the latest iPod software update and then use iTunes, or do I have to run the software installer that came with the iPod)? I assume I don't have to run the installer again...right?
Given my wife & I will share the same music & photo libraries, can I have the 2 iPods automatically sync the music & photo libraries in total? Or do I have to manually sync?


thanks,
Frank
