A customer has an iPod Classic and an iPod nano. How do you separate what is put on each device so that it can have it's own playlist? Am I missing the obvious?

    It is fairly easy

    Create 2 Playlists ... one for each Ipod (you can create a folder for each iPod and put multiple playlists in each also)

    Plug in 1st iPod
    Select iPod and go to the Music Tab
    Check the Sync Music box and the Selected Playlists option
    Now you can just tick the checkboxes for the playlists associated with the iPod
    Sync & disconnect

    Repeat process with 2nd iPod .. selecting alternative playlists ..
