    Is it possible to sync 2 different iPods to the same computer and have different content on both?

    checking and un-checking everything each time is NOT an option.

    EDIT: sorry, posted in the wrong section, move this to the iPod + iTunes section please.

    You'll probably want to set up playlists to sync, instead of just syncing the entire library. You could even use comments to mark each song as for either iPod A, iPod B, or both, and just have 2 smart playlists.

    In short, yes...via multiple methods.

    on the latest itunes, you click on the itunes icon so that its blue and you hold i think the shift key for windows and the option key on macs. then you hit enter. just hold down shift or option while you open itunes and it should ask you to make a new user or something

    With my iPods, I just make a playlist for each one. Go into your iPod under devices in itunes and just check to sync a different playlist for that iPod.
