Chapter 11. Taking the iPod Further > Using an iPod with More Than One Computer

Using an iPod with More Than One Computer

Because the iPod is so very portable, you might use it with more than one computer—especially when you use it as a portable drive, as you learned how to do in the previous two sections. And because iTunes is free, there is no reason you can't install it on every computer you use.

Using an iPod with more than one computer presents only one minor complication: When you configure an iPod to be automatically updated (either with the full automatic or the selected playlist option), you link it to the iTunes Library on the machine you configured the update on. When you connect the iPod to another machine that also has automatic updating set, you will see a warning prompt that explains that the iPod is linked to another iTunes Library (see Figure 11.11).
