You can only sync an iPod with one iTunes library, so if he has his nano synced with his Library, he can't get stuff from your library unless he erases everything and syncs it with yours. And after that he won't be able to get stuff from his Library unless he erases it again. So I'm pretty sure the only option is to copy the files from your computer to his and then sync the nano with his iTunes.

Not the only option, but by far the best option.

Yup, I was just going to say that. You can use multiple libraries to copy to the iPod in manual mode.. but, I don't think you can sync anything back to another machine from the iPod.(haven't tried.)

Unlock your iPod with Senuti, a simple application that allows you to transfer songs from your iPod to your computer.
About Senuti

Senuti is a simple application for transfering songs from your iPod back to your computer.

There are many good reasons that someone would have to transfer music from her iPod back to her computer. There are many good ways to do it, too. Senuti is the only alternative that will give you the power and convenience that you need, wrapped in an interface that is extremely easy to use, at a cost that you can't complain about.

Lightning fast There's a little file on your iPod called the iTunesDB file. What does that mean to you? Nothing. What does that mean to me? Everything. Every bit of information on every song on your iPod is stored in this little file. Every bit of information on your playlists is stored in this file, too. It's how iTunes knows what's on your iPod. It's how your iPod knows what's there, too. There isn't a much faster way to figure out what's on your iPod.
Finding Songs Senuti includes all of the built in options that one would expect to find songs. You can search and sort in any combination of ways that you want. That's not quite enough sometimes, though. Sometimes you might want to know if you're copying the right song. Know how it goes, but don't know if that title is quite right? Play it! That's right, Senuti will play songs directly off of your iPod. It can even double as a jukebox player for your Shuffle or any other iPod.
Playlists Senuti not only reads the playlists that you made on your iPod, but it allows you to transfer them back to your computer as well. A simple drag and drop action within the application will not only copy songs to your computer and and add them to iTunes, but it will make a new playlist with the same name and add all of the songs to that list.
Seamless Integration Adding songs to your computer, you're probably going to add them to iTunes right after that, right? What if you didn't have to, wouldn't that be great? Well you don't have to. Senuti will do all of the work for you. What work you want it to do is up to you. You can have songs added to iTunes if you want. You can have all of your music organized into folders by artist and album, too. The option's yours.

Thanks, Ottawaman. I did hear of Sentui not working with the iPod Touch or the iPhone.. but, I'm going to give it a try and let everyone know. :)
