Music can take up a large amount of space on a computer, especially on a computer with multiple users. Multiple users, each with their music libraries can take its toll on a computer.
For example, my parents' computer houses my mom's music library, my dad's music library, and my younger brother's music library. However, my parents have a very similar music taste except for my dad's Willie Nelson collection. In fact they have duplicates, mom's library contains many of the same songs as my dad's library.
There is a solution! Multiple iPods can be synced easily with one library. Say good bye to duplicates and say hello to a new cleaner library with a greater variety of music and a computer with a lighter load to carry.
Materials you will need:
* 2 (or more) iPods
* Sync Cable
Remember - this is not a Mac dependent Instructable
Step 1: Preparing the iPods: iPod A
To begin, open your iTunes application. The latest version is iTunes 10. The icon changes quite a bit from the familiar CD and blue music note to the now black music now held in a blue circle. I've included the pictures of the icons to help you figure which version you are using.
Another way to find out is to view "About iTunes" in the menu.
*On the Mac, select iTunes in the top navigation bar and select "About iTunes".
*On the PC, select Help in the iTunes navigation and select "About iTunes."
Once the application is open, connect the Sync cable's wide end and connect it to iPod A.
