I have a recently install I tunes on my Pc with Microsoft Windows Vista and this afternoon I bought some music on internet and now seems to have two libraries and cannot sync new music as it comes up erase previous library. Any help?
Problem with two libraries in my ITUNES
Synchronizing iTunes Library?? Infact many iTunes users are still unaware that it is possible to use multiple iTunes libraries on the same computer system. And by the way there is virtually no information about running multiple iTunes libraries once iTunes has been started on your system.
But why anybody want to use multiple library? I think the main reason to use multiple iTunes libraries would be to divide specific data into different libraries. This can be dividing tango and jazz music, libraries for specific occasions, specific music genres or types like bootlegs or live music only etc.
Actually it is very easy to create a second iTunes library. All you need to do is to press the Shift key (on Windows) and Alt (on Macs) before launching iTunes. A small popup window will be displayed asking you to choose or create a library. And you will be all set to create a new library!
Also be aware that iTunes will always open the library that has been used the last time iTunes was executed. Switching between libraries will again require pressing the Shift key or Alt key (in case of Mac) during launch.
