    Question iTunes Library issues

    I am brand new here so please be gentle. I am running XP and SP3. I have three user accounts for my wife, myself and my son. My wife and I are both administrators. I have about 385 songs in my iTunes library. I just bought my wife her first iPod and I want her to have access to my library without having to log onto my user account. When we open iTunes on her "side", there is no music in the library. How do I get the files from iTunes on my "side" to the iTunes library on her "side"?

    Most likely has to do with where iTunes stores the songs. When you sign in to your "side", Windows and iTunes uses the Documents and Settings folder with your account name. When she signs in, they use the Documents and Settings folder with her name, and your songs are not there. You can "TRY" to copy the songs to her folder, but iTunes might have DRM that tells it who'd account the songs belong to.

    Thank you JJ, that did the trick. Should have thought of it myself.
