I have an iPad, 1st gen. My wife just got an iPad, 3rd gen. I went to iTunes to add some music to her new iPad. The music was already on my laptop. I was not buying more music. iTunes asked if this was a new iPad. I said, "Yes" because it was a new iPad, after all. Then iTunes started to synch and add my Apps, etc. to her iPad. So, I have to uncheck all the "Synch" check marks but the music (Unchecked apps synch, movie synch, podcast synch, etc.)
I thought that iTunes would know the difference since each iPad has a different serial number. I think my mistake was that I should have logged off my iTunes account (Apple ID) and logged on to my wife's iTunes account using her new Apple ID. Is this the way to synch two different iPads with different stuff using the same laptop for both?
Anyone else have this happen to them? Any suggestions?
