2 ipods 1 computer

A friend has 2 sons, and both have just had ipods, one is a mini and the other a normal one(whatever that is). I have no idea about these things but said I would ask someone who probably did so here goes. The problem is with installing them both on the same pc (XP) is this possible, they have tried and I think it worked although everything that was stored for the larger ipod went into the mini (which I think happens by default) as they have different tastes in music is there any way round this, I thought about installing them as different users on the pc but I think they tried this and it didn't work, if anyone has any ideas they would be very grateful Thanks

I have three iPods associated with my account.

When you first install them you have the option in Itunes to name them. So in my case I have A's iPod, B's iPod and C's Pod.

Each has it's own settings - ie automatically update or manually update. Each person has their own playlists in iTunes which they responsible for.

Thanks for that I've passed the message on I also found a tutorial for the playlists so hopefully that should sort them out Cheers
