    Hi

    I've got anIpod 30gb and love it, so much so I reccomended one to my father. He now has a Nano 4gb I think and has asked me to upload a stack of his CD's onto his Ipod either using my ITunes or his on his computer. I'm not bothered either way but wanted to know if I were to upload all his CDs and tracks onto my Itunes how this could be done without him getting all of my downloaded tracks which I have built up over some time? I've tried exploring the help section but can't seem to find an answer? If this route isn't possible - could anyone suggest how it could be done?

    Many Thanks
    Nick

    Rip his cd's to your library and set yours and his iPod to manual update not auto sync and drag them to his iPod.:smashin:

    We have three iPods in our house one large library and we all just drag and drop what we want to the individual iPod.

    Or if you have windows xp set up a different user ie your dad rip his cd's to his own library and drop them onto his ipod.:smashin:

    It might be easiest to create another user account on windows for your dad to log in with. He can then have his very own copy of iTunes and so have his own music in there, without having to access any of yours. This will keep the 2 iTunes and iPods completely separate.
