I have one iTunes account and I have one iPod. My daughter now has an iPod too. How do I get the music from my iTunes library to her iPod?

This post is tagged "iPod-touch" -- if this is about the iPod Touch, there are potential answers that are quite different than for a nano, shuffle, or classic iPod. Additionally, the version of iOS running on the iPod Touch changes the answers, as does whether the user has iTunes Match. – Daniel Jun 24 '12 at 23:07

Regardless of the kind of iPod your daughter has, you can add songs to her iPod by connecting the iPod to your computer and dragging the songs, playlists or library to her iPod. After it is finished syncing, it will be ready to go. If the iPod was previously synced to another computer and not set for "manually manage music", syncing with the new computer will replace the songs on the iPod. If the iPod was set up for manual management, you can drag songs to it from the libraries on different computers.
