Help please , When I load all my songs on to my itunes player the same songs go on to my son's itunes player and when he puts his songs on to itunes I get his songs on my player.
And then when I connect my ipod to my player all his songs go on to my ipod and vice verse.
There's probably a simply answer to this but for the life of me I cant figure it out.,,,Help please.

Need more info. Lets start with a basic question - are you using a Mac or a PC? If its a Mac I'll try to help otherwise I'll have to leave it to someone else.

it is set up to automatically "sync" (ie move everything across) you need to change that so it only updates things when you want it to

somewhere along the tool bar at the top in one of the drop is the command "manually update"

I'll see if I can find it

OK when you open Itunes (I'm hoping you have the same version as me- which I'm guessing is the latest one)

plug in your Ipod - when it recognises it - you should get a pic of an ipod on the screen with a series of buttons / tabs at the top

click on "summary", scroll down to "options" and tick "manually manage music and videos", you will need to do that for both ipods

then Itunes will only move stuff when you tell it to.

also at the tope of Itunes is a tab called help - you can search it for answers to "how to do stuff too"

good luck

OK - on a Mac each user on the machine has their own account. They can set things up as they wish including all their itunes stuff. When an ipod is connected, it automatically downloads whats in the itunes folder to update anything you've added or deleted since the last time. It will only sync the right ipod with the right account so everyones music doesn't get mixed up.

I'm not sure if this happens with a PC. Back to Alison - the simplest solution would be to buy a Mac!!

Does any iPod user know a way to transfer music back from the iPod to the computer (I use a Mac)? I loaded some radio progs on to the iPod and I would now like to store them on CD.

Any advice, please?

Thanks
Norman

For all the elegance of the iPod user interface, Apple could make it easier to transfer songs back to your hard drive. All the other player manufacturers simply allow you to easily browse your portable music player like a hard drive and pick and choose tracks from the drive for transfer back to your computer. Besides crisis averting situations like hard disk failure, replacing your computer becomes easier if you don't need to transfer the entire contents of your music library from the old machine to a new one. Putting specific tracks from your iTunes store purchases on any of the authorized machines becomes easier. Playing your favorite songs on a computer at work doesn't need to be a colossal task if they simplified the process of transferring songs from iPod to PC or Mac. Since Apple isn't interested in providing this necessary feature, finding a workaround becomes necessary.

The quick and dirty way to solve your problem is to browse through the hidden folders on your iPod after mounting it as a hard drive on your system. However, browsing through the folders on the hard drive increases the potential for corrupting the iPod database, which may result in losing all your songs from the iPod before you transfer them to your PC. Use this method at your own risk.

Rather than putting your entire song library in jeopardy, I suggest investing in an affordable software app for handling the audio file transfer. A quick search of any major download site will turn up literally dozens of apps designed for this purpose. The one I'm recommending is iPod Access, which works for both Windows and Mac OS X users. iPod Access is $19.99 for Windows or OS X.

One of the main reasons I recommend iPod Access over any of the other software solutions is because it seems to have the most complete set of features. Using iPod Access to backup the library on your iPod to a computer provides a ton of features you might expect from a more traditional full hard disk backup solution. The software tracks changes, incrementally backing up tracks as you add them to the iPod. It interfaces directly with the iPod song database, providing all the Album and Artist information. It clones the playlists you created on the iPod, so you won't even need to start from scratch on playlisting. iPod Access will even recover songs from iPods with a damaged database in most cases.
I found this info here , there is lots of othere tips

Don't blame me if the tip above does not work and you make a mess of your ipod.

I think I've started something here - I'm no longer sure whether the question relates to transferring from an ipod to a mac or a pc!

The simple answer is that you're not supposed to be able to do it. So far as mac's are concerned (maybe pc's I don't know) you should refer to pages 82-86 of the "Missing Manual for ilife '05". You need the correct software (there are several options) which you can download from the "Missing CD" page of www.missingmanuals.com.

I've never been there so I can say no more - best of luck.
Ray

PS I'm not a Mac guru!

You can also capture the playing of a file using Audio HIjack, make an aiff or MP3 file out of it and put it wherever you wish.

That's a slwoer process than using a specific software solution.

Thanks for that y'all. I guessed it was something Apple was blocking me from doing. I'll look at the software options.

Cheers
