    I am considering buying an iPod 40Gb and my girlfriend is thinking of getting an iPod mini.

    I was wondering if anyone has any experiencing of using 2 iPods to sync with one PC. I know that the iTunes software syncronises your collection, but wondered if it would detect between the two.

    Thanks

    Yes you can have two ipods on one PC. You can have them both on "auto-update" so that they have identical content, or you can put one (or both) on "manual update" and select yourself which songs go on which ipod.
    I know this for a fact as I plugged my brothers Ipod into my iTunes last night :smashin:

    You can also set up different user accounts if you are using Windows XP so that both iPods can be on automatic update and one person logs in on one account and the ohter person on their own account.
