ipod classic 160gb / 256gb library

hi, please help

I have a 160gb ipod classic synced with iTunes.
I have also got a 256gb ssd ipod classic.

what I want to do is create an exact same duplicate of my 160gb library on my 256gb ipod with rating playlists etc which can then be added to etc.

but I need it to be completely independent from the original library so if I ever wish to go back to a 160gb ipod the original library (which is under 160gb) will fit on it..

so I wish to create 2 exact same iTunes libraries
1 as backup for my original 160gb ipod should I ever go back to it.
2 a new library which can be added to without affecting my original library.

I hope this makes sense and wondered is this possible.

thanks for your time and any help, craig

If all your music is being managed by iTunes, and located under the iTunes folder, you can do this quite easily.

Close iTunes.
Open Windows Explorer and go to My Music.
Copy the iTunes folder.
Paste the iTunes folder in the My Music directory
Rename "iTunes - Copy" to iTunes160
Hold the SHIFT key and start iTunes.
Navigate up to My Music, then to iTunes160 and select the library file.
Sync the 160.
Close iTunes.
Hold the SHIFT key and start iTunes.
Navigate up to My Music, then to iTunes and select the library file.
Sync the 256.
iTunes will open with the 256 library by default.

Good luck maintaining 2 libraries.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
