Currently Being ModeratedFeb 25, 2009 11:59 AM (in response to Illadelph215)*is there a setting so that we can edit each others library using the shared library function in iTunes*
Libraries shared using the "Share my library" option will only let other people see and listen to the library. The songs can't be changed, copied or otherwise used by anyone other than the person who is sharing the library: iTunes for Mac - About shared librariesG5 PowerMac 1.8 DP, Black MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5), 30GB iPod 5G, 80 GB iPod Classic, 2nd Generation iPod shuffle
Currently Being ModeratedMay 19, 2009 8:44 PM (in response to Illadelph215)We have 3 iPods and one computer in our house. I'm wondering if you can run 2 or 3 copies of iTunes on one computer so, you don't have to update multiple iPods manually. We all have upwards of 12,000 songs each and we would each prefer to leave our iPods to update automatically.
Also for some reason I can't create a new post. There isn't a 'Create New Post Option' button for me to click on????

If you want to have several versions of iTunes, to sync an iPod to each, then create as many new user accounts as you need (SysPrefs > Accounts) - iTunes will run fresh and new within each new user account. However, each will have its own separate iTunes Library (though you could set things up so that each user can read the iTunes Music folder from an external drive).
The other way is to set up new iTunes Libraries from within one user account. Launch iTunes with the Option key held down, Create Library.. and set up a new one for each iPod. However you will only be able to have one Library open at once.iMac G5 17" 1.5Gb RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

Create a different playlist for each iPod within one iTunes, then sync each iPod to its own playlist.iMac G5 17" 1.5Gb RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 16, 2009 8:45 AM (in response to christopher rigby1)Thank you very much for info. Has made my day and setting up my new external hard drive much easier. I have now copied all my music from my old powerbook G4 to my external hard drive and pasted a copy of itunes onto that hard drive. Using your instructions, I now have access to my old itunes library with playlists and everything intact. I was wondering if there is anyway to make it so that when I launch itunes from the external hard drive it always opens that hard drive's library and vice versa for when I launch the itunes on my laptop?
Also can the same principle be applied to Iphoto so again I can keep my old powerbook's library separate from my macbook's one?

You CAN create differing Libraries for differing members by simply holding ALT key and clicking on the iTunes icon
A new window opens which allows you the create additional library accounts.
Then to swap accounts hold the ALT key and click on iTunes icon ,select the library you want and that launches.
ITunes has been able to do this for years

This i know.
How to run all this configs in one time? I need run multiple copy of iTunes in one time!
Now only way to create multiple users and login to each account and then run iTunes.
but if computer restart, need do it again.
So question: How make login in each user account automaticly after reboot?
Mac can log in only in one account automaticly.
