Angry Can i get someone elses library onto my ipod?

Can i get someone else's iTunes library onto my iPod, without deleting all of my music files?

whenever i try to sync their songs, a window comes up saying it would have to delete all my songs to replace it with their songs.

i want theirs without replacing mine! help?

The only way to sync an iPod to more than one iTunes library is to set it to "Manually Manage Songs and Playlists" under iTunes/Edit->Preferences->iPod.

In this mode, you can drag-and-drop music from any iTunes library onto your iPod, however you will have to do this with your home library as well, so you will not get the benefits of automatic synchronization -- specifically you will have to drag-and-drop any newly-imported tracks manually to your iPod every time you add new tracks to your library, and you will not have your rating and playcount information updated in iTunes.

Note as well that if you every turn automatic synchronization back on at your home library, you will lose any music you have added that is not also in your home library.
