    Ok, so my sister has an ipod and she wants some of my songs. Is there a way or a program I can use to put some of my songs on her ipod ? I don't want to put the whole library on there.

    btw, I'm using a mac

    Do you have iTunes set up on your Mac? You should be able to select songs from your itunes library and simply drag them on to the ipod icon, under the devices tab, while her iPod is connected.

    And naturally, these are songs that the OP owns the copyright, right?:D

    Probably not, why do you ask?

    Is it illegal in your country to share music with your friends and family members?

    Even if the songs weren't purchased via iTunes (amazon, rhapsody etc.) you can still just drag them into iTunes and then onto the device.

    That wont work since her ipod can only be sync'ed to her itunes at her computer.

    You can probably just right click the album/song and show them in finder and copy them to a thumb drive/ext hard drive. Then just drag the songs from the thumb drive/ext hard drive into iTunes.
