two iTunes accounts on one computer and two iphones.

Here is the deal. I have one computer (pc) two itunes account. One account is mine and one is my wife's. We both have iphones. Is it possible for her to get some music (from ripped cd's) off of my itunes account? I guess I don't understand why this is so difficult. She can get music from either itunes account using her ipod nano, but the iphone will not work. I can not get music from her account either using my iphone, but I can get music from her account using my ipod classic. Please advise.


Thank you,
Lexluther18

When an iPod, iPhone or Apple TV is connected to iTunes, all content from all authorized accounts will (read: should) transfer to the device. Apple does not set a FairPlay limit on the number of iPods that purchased content can be transferred to (to the best of my knowledge).

If certain content is not syncing, maybe try deleting it from your library and readding it?

Only your computer needs to be authorized to play music for each iTunes account which you download content from - in this case, yours and your wife's. To authorize your computer, you select 'Authorize Computer' under iTunes' 'Store' menu.

Once the computer is authorized for both accounts, all content will be transferred to any iPhone that you connect to it. You don't actually authorize the iPhone, but you authorize the computer which you're syncing the iPhone from (if that makes any sense whatsoever).
