iTunes - Multiple libraries?

  john bunyan 20:49 25 Aug 2007

My two grandchildren share a library of incomrehensible stuff ! They uncheck tunes they dont want on their separate iPods, but would prefer to have their own libraries to make it easier to sync their iPods. Now I'm thinking of getting an iPod too (now three in total on my computer) and my music will be much older fashioned! Can ,and how, do I create three libraries, with the ability to have some tracks duplicated on each library? iTunes help is a bit obscure.

Have 1 main library, all music.

Then create 3 seperate playlists, picking your music from the main library.

Not sure if someone has shared this, but like every other audio "distinction" in iTunes, "ringtones" are no different. They are AAC files with a special name. In this case, the extension is "M4R".

1. To add a ringtone to your iPhone, using Windows Explorer or the Finder just duplicate and rename any AAC file to be "M4R", then double-click on it. This file will be added to your iTunes library automatically.
2. Now, click on your iPhone in iTunes, and go to the ringtone section. You should now see your new ringtone. If you want to be sure about the sync, feel free to click "selected ringtones" and check off the file explicitly, though this shouldn't be required.
3. Now SYNC your phone. You're Done!
This works on the PC, I'm still downloading the Mac version, but its the same principle. Sorry Ambrosia, Apple totally made your product iToner unnecessary as you gambled it might. Thanks for the week though. It was fun.
