I've searched on here and elsewhere on the tubes on how to use separate iTunes libraries but it does not seem to be working.
My iPhone 5 has all my podcasts, about 4 albums worth of music, books, and some iTunes U stuff. It's library is on dropbox and the path is /Users/Admin/Dropbox/iTunes
My iPod classic has 50GB of music. I want it to have it's own library. Currently the library is located on my Desktop.
I Option+click to open iTunes and choose the iPod library but Preferences still points to the iPhone library on Dropbox. Also, even with "Prevent iPhones ... from syncing automatically" checked my iPhone is located via wifi and appears in the iTunes device section next to my iPod. I can't find any option to disable this. (ETA: Found the button to disable wifi sync. I swear it was missing all afternoon.)
Maybe put my iPhone into airplane mode, then connect iPod? But that's kind of an annoying solution to have to do every time.
I'd appreciate any assistance in getting each device to reliably sync with it's own library/directory.
