I have seral kids...upgrading iPods for older kids and want to hand down iPod's to the younger kids. How do I change the ownership/registration of an iPod from one kid's name to another?

Thank you....

    What do you mean?

    Just hand it to the other kid and they can begin using it.

    No need to register again. The warranty is by serial number.

    Each Kid has their own play list under their name/iPod. If I give Jane's iPod to Jimmy and Jimmy connects to iTunes, iTunes recognizes the iPod as Jane's and sync's her play list. I know I could change Jane's old iPod to sync to Jimmy's play list...but iTunes still knows the old iPod as Jane. Jane now has a new iPod. When she connects to iTunes it will recognize it as Jane's...but I have changed Jane's old iPod to sync to Jimmy's play list. Janes' new iPod will sync to Jimmy's play list. wow...
    I would like to have iTunes recognize the old iPod as now Jimmy's. How do I do that?

    You can double click on the name of the ipod under devices and change it.

    I'm not sure if this will mean that it will be recognized as you want it, but at least the name will be changed.

    Note that changing the name will not change what is sync'd to that iPod.
    Each person will still need to change what they want to sync to their own "new" iPod after they rename it.
