    I have my own iPod and iPhone that i update on my macbook, ive just gotten my daughter an iPod nano and i want to use my macbook and iTunes account to upload songs onto it for her.

    is there any way to create a seperate library for her? so that all her albums (miley cyrus et al!) do not upload to my iPod?

    thanks in advance! :)

    If you only want a particular subset of songs on your iPod you can make a playlist and only sync that OR uncheck the songs you do not want to be synced when viewing your library....both options much easier than managing two libraries.

    I haven't yet tried out PowerTunes but I have used iPhoto Library Manager to manage my multiple iPhoto libraries and it's worked wonderfully.

    It costs $19.95, but if you're going to have multiple libraries, this seems like a good option. It has a trial if you want to give it a shot.
