Had a question...
My Mom and bro just got a computer (to share), and with it they got a free iPod (mini). I set them up so they would each have their own accounts. They want to also share the iPod, and here comes my question...
How can they share an iPod with different accounts on the computer? For example, as of right now, if they each had different songs on thier iTunes (for obvious reasons), each time the iPod got hooked to the computer, it would want to sync with the account it was hooked up to...each time deleting the other person's songs.
How can I make it so every song they import/download shows up on both accounts in iTunes. And every time the iPod was synced it got everyone's songs?
Thanks
Note: Every time I say "account" I mean for the Computer, not for iTunes (such as for buying songs).

not sure if this is possible. perhaps setting up a third open account where they both have access. they can do their individual playlists and all ipod related stuff in the joint account. turn on music sharing in the third account so they both can listen to music while in thier own private accounts.
