View Full Version : multiple iPods on Windows XP home - best way to manage

Dec 25, 2006, 12:22 PM
Alright its Christmas afternoon, my wife, daughters (x2), and myself all have iPods...we also have different user accounts with windows XP. Instead of us all running separate iTunes on all of our individual accounts. I think I want to create one separate user account and have one family iTunes library.

Not sure if this makes sense, anyone able to help or lead me to appropriate thread (i wasn't successful in finding one).

Thanks in advance for all of your help! Have a great day!

Can't remember when i answered my own post, but i kept looking and found this on the Apple website.


If anyone has anything to add I'd appreciate it.

My grandsons got iPods, too. I went to their mom's computer (PC) (she also has a nano) and created a separate library for each of them. Then, she only has to hold down the Shift key to be asked which library she wants to access. Seems to be working just fine.
