Can I load songs from 2 different iTunes libraries into 1 iPod? From 2 different accounts?

Load XXX songs from account 1 into my iPod, and then add XXXX songs from account 2 into my iPod?

I don't know whether I am explaining myself correctly....

Not directly because Apple designed it so you can only "sync" with one itunes at a time. This means after you sync with one, when you try to sync with the second one it will erase/overwrite everything from the first.

What you will have to do is get on one computer and copy the music folder to a flash drive and then import it into iTunes on the second computer. Then sync the combined iTunes library to the iPod.

There are other ways though such as using a third party iPod management application instead of using iTunes. Some of the third party applications allow you to sync multiples, copy music from various iPods to the library, etc. They basically remove all the limitations Apple forces on you through iTunes.

Thank you SO MUCH for replying. So do I have to copy the whole music folder, or can I just copy some of the songs?

You could just copy the particular songs you want. Either way will work.

If you were to copy the entire folder, you could then use the "delete duplicates" to remove any multiple copies of the same songs if they were present in both folders.

Yes, you can. First, turn off auto-sync. Log in as the first user and select the stuff you want to download, and do a manual sync. They log in as the second user and repeat.
