    Ok I would like to know what is going to happen in advance:
    I have a jailbroken i pod- i tunes recognises this as my named i pod (youngest Daughters) I have just purchased another 1st generation i pod(for my eldest Daughter) I will jailbreak with 2.2 firmware, will i tunes be able to recognise the 2 devices seperately because I want to continue running 2.0 firmware on the other i pod?
    Your help is much appreciated as Im still kinda new on here, the users on the forum so far have been a great help,
    Thankyou.

    Wow that was quick ok thankyou very much can I also add my second Daughters i pod touch on the original accont that I have because Im sure i tunes said only 1 i pod per account? If so does that mean I have to create another account or can I use the same name and password when I want to install something from i tunes?

    nope you don't need to create a new one.

    you can use 1 account for 2 or more ipod's.

    but if you want a separate account for your 2 ipods,

    you may feel free to do so. you can create an another account if you want to.

    you can log in and log out an account on itunes.

    Similar question. I have an iPod classic sync to my computer. I'm buying a 2G Touch. I would like to syn both to the same computer but use different rules for each device. I don't want to install my entire music library on the 2G touch, but I do want to sync my contacts and calendar. I don't want to load the apps, calendar or contacts on the classic. How can I establish different sync rules. Does this make sense?
    Thanks in advance

    Wow... this is the exact question I have. Can anyone answer? I've found a few search results but they only address creating specific play lists.

    Each iPod will have it's own set of sync rules even if they are set up on the same account. The entire library for that account will be shown, but you can pick and choose what gets synced to each device. iTunes remembers your sync settings for each device.

    It's very user friendly.
