I've been struggling with this issue for a while now and can't seem to figure it out. So here it goes.

I have 3 Kids and each owns there own computer all PC's. I own a mac.

Each of the three kids has their own itunes account thus their own libraries, and I have my own.

How can these different libraries all be merged. I figure since I pay for all the music in this house I should be able to have everything that is downloaded in my library and my iphone. Plus the kids should be able to share their downloads with each other???

so there it is.

thanks for your help.

If you are all on a network, you can configure itunes to share music.

Another possibility is to share music over the internet. You can try this:

Both of the above options don't work with DRM protected files unless all of the computers are authorized to play them (up to 5 computers can be authorized).

If you paid for all of the music, you should have your own copy. Make copies of all of your kids' music and put it on your computer. Once again, your computer will need to have authorization to play the files (if it has DRM).
