    I tried to search for this, but guess I couldn't phrase it right in the search...

    So - I know it is possible to sync multiple devices with iTunes, but is there any thing I should be aware of. I have always synced both my 80gb iPod Video and my iPod Touch and never had any problems.

    But, not with the iPad will there be any issues. I am concerned about the Apps mostly. If and app is specifically for the iPad will that cause any problem when I sync my iPod Touch? If there are two different versions of an App (iPod and iPad) will I end up with both versions on my iPad if I have purchased both? Not sure if there is anything else that could cause problems, but just wanted to check with the "experts" :D

    Thanks

    You should not have any problems. I have two ipods and my ipad syncing to the same account. You will be able to control what syncs to which unit.

    All devices have their own profile so you can plug each one in and they won't affect each other...and you can transfer purchases between them if they use the same iTunes account.

    Thanks for the answers - I kinda figured it would be ok to sync, but just wanted to check.

    Now -- one more quick question if anyone is around ..

    What does "Configure Universal Access" do? I have that button in iTunes, but have no idea what it does.

    Thanks

    Same as universal access in mac os, so it enables zoom, white on black (inverted colors) and some other features to help with people with vision/hearing problems.

    So I know iTunes has a limit of 5 devices per account.....will the iPad be considered one of these 5? I'm guessing it will but just wanted to confirm.

    Thanks!

    That's a good question, but since you don't have to authorize an iPad/iPhone/iPod I think that only applies to computers.

    Is that correct?? If so cool....I thought you could only have so many devices or else you would be loading your library on anyone and everyone's unit??

    Maybe I'm confusing this with the home share limit:confused::confused::confused:

    No you can only load onto a unit with your iTunes account. So you cant install my iPad apps or iTunes purchases unless your iPad is reregistered with my account...that's how I share apps with my gf, her iPod touch uses my user account.
