Prevent iPod from mounting on other accounts?
Is there a way to prevent OS X from mounting and/or detecting iPods from certain user accounts? I have fast user switching enabled on my iBook and it's annoying to wake into my wife's account and have it automount my iPod (worse if iTunes is loaded since it'll then lock the iPod to her account).
She has an iPod herself, so I hope there's some sort of volume label-based solution that'll keep our things mutually exclusive.

I only have one iPod, but I THINK you can set the prefs PER IPOD for what happens when you plug it in. You'd have to set those choices for each iPod in each account, but then after that you might be set.
I know when I log in to other accounts on my machine, my iPod doesn't launch iTunes (which it did the first time). It may mount on the desktop, but that's not too harmful.

The thing is that if iTunes is loaded, it'll mount any iPod that's connected regardless of whether you've set it to be ignored. If you're switching between user accounts, you can easily get bombarded by annoying error messages stating that "iPod X is in use by another computer".
