    Can two different iPads be synced to the same computer?

    What I did was create another Windows user for my iPad syncing and left my wife's ipad and kids ipods on the main user.

    Or you could just make another iTunes library. Double click iTunes and hold down the shift key. Create a new library, and set iTunes the way you want. (you apps, your music) Then just choose which library you want depending on the iPad you are syncing.

    I would just set up the iPads to manually manage apps and movies. This way you just move the ones you want onto your device and it doesn't automatically sync the apps you don't want.

    I had to do this when I bought my iphone last week and my iPad started to sync all the iPhone apps.

    I have seven iDevices synched to the same computer, on the same iTunes account. I can share content among them, but iTunes recognizes all as individual devices and synchs only the content I've chosen. The devices: a touch, two iPhones and four iPads.

    Basically you have to do 2 versions, as they are different Operating Systems one won't work for both.

    Lol. I use "only" two of the iPads, one iPhone and the touch. The other devices are used by my husband and another family member.

    We did this too.
    It's not that complicated.
    Did it for the iPods too so that we didn't have to worry about what the kids were listening to.

    Still think it's easier to setup separate playlists and sync settings from the same library than separate libraries. No problem with syncing to the wrong library then.

I have certain apps now that I downloaded where he asks the password of my girlfriend for updates and others my password. setup seperate playlists from the same library... Isn`t that only for music/ movies then and not the apps? don`t know if it makes a difference but i tunes is on a mac computer linked. Thanks J
