    we have recently bought an Ipod touch 16gb (really pleased with it),currently it is all synced and Itunes is installed on my laptop,my wife would like to stsrt adding her music to the Ipod as well,now heres the question.can Itunes be installed on her laptop where she can install her own music/video's etc without affecting the Itunes on my laptop?,would it be an identical Itunes library on BOTH laptops,and does anybody have the same setup and experienced any problems?.
    thanks in anticipation..

    yeah if she has different music on her computer just make sure you have the manage music and videos


    but you can/should only sync other data with one computer, such as with apps, calenders, mail and contacts just so you dont have to track down everything after a restore, so for example you would use your computer to transfer all media and sync data, but still manage music and videos

    and then on your wifes laptop just check manage music and videos but dont sync the ipod with her computer
