I have a Windows Vista system that is shared by my three children. Each has an individual login for Windows and each uses iTunes. Is there a way for them each to have their own iTunes account linked to their own gift cards (so they are not drawing from one pool)? Thanks!
Dell, Windows Vista

    Create a separate Apple ID for each child, and use that ID's username and password with the iTunes Store.

    I have an origional nano, my wife just bought the new video nano. She bought a bunch of songs. we created a new itunes store log in for her, but some how, my downloads ended up on her nano. I thought restoring her nano would solve th problem, but when we sync it, my down loads und right back up on her nano
    My itunes log in has my downloads plus hers. how do we move her down loads to her nano, an wipe my download off her profile?

    Not sure if this is the same problem but...my husband and I share a computer with his login for our internet access. My ipod was bought first and so i have itunes etc set up for me and all working well. just got him an ipod and when we followed set up all it did was arrive at my itunes and put all my i tunes stuff on his ipod. How can we set up separate itunes (libraries etc)and avoid ending up with each others stuff on our respective ipods????

    Neil, THANKS!!! Have created the new library, brilliant advice...just one more concern....before I synch his ipod to his new library I would like to wipe the ipod clean as it has all my stuff on it. Just worried that it will somehow put all my stuff back from his ipod onto his library. Any advice welcome please.

    Unless the Transfer Purchases option is used, all content from the original iTunes library will be deleted from the iPod upon synchronization. That option only applies to content from the iTunes Store.
