    I have a quick question. My brother owns a older iPod nano 2GB. I am getting a 80GB classic for XMas, I was wondering how I can set up iTunes so I can have my music and movies seperate from his Music. Will it recognize my iPod from his?

    iTunes will work with multiple iPods, I have 3 ipods that I regularly connect to iTunes.

    If you want separate music collections you have two choices, two user accounts on the mac, or a single account with two iTunes libraries. If you hold the option key when you launch iTunes you'll be given the option to select which library to use or to create a new library.

    Everything I said still holds, although clearly it's a different key as windows doesn't have an Option key, it might be the Ctrl or Alt key instead.

    Okay.

    And the current iPod Classic 80GB that is listed on Apple.com what Generation is that? 5 or 5.5G? I do not know how to find out. I just want to know what the current generation is for the classic.
