I want to un-sync my sons ipod as he has his own account now. He hasn't purchased anything his ipod has only ever been connected once it's my own account and I want his ipod un-synced from it.

Go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings. This will erase the iPod. He then can connect it to his syncing computer and restore/setup the iPod and then sunc as necessary. If you have a 1G or 2G iPod make sure the iPod is connected to a charging source since it can takes hours for the erase

Then I do not understand what you want to do. Do you want to sync the iPod to another computer?
You can go to Settings>Store and sign out of your account and sign into his. Just note that he will have to use your account to update apps purchased with your account.

I'm sorry I'm not explaining myself very well.
Okay, I have my own itunes account which is all totally fine. I have since downloaded itunes onto my sons netbook so he can use his own itunes account, everything is set up and ready for him, only because I plugged my sons ipod into my itunes on my computer, his ipod automatically synced to mine, now i cant sync his ipod to his own because it will mean him losing everything he has on his ipod. I just wanted to know how to un-sync his ipod from mine so he wouldn't lose all his stuff.
Am I making any sense I'm sorry if your struggling to understand me

- Transfer iTunes purchases to his computer by:
- Connect the iPod to his computer and make a backup by right clicking on the iPod undere Devices in iTunes and select Back Up.
- Restore the iPod from that backup.

Hi IIIaass, I wanted to thank you for your help on this, I took on board lots of your advice but I was still having problems, it's probably just me.
However I did manage to sort it in the end by transferring all my sons Apps onto a memory stick and moving them across that way.
Thanks again for all your help.
