I have searched this topic online extensively and have not been able to find a case similar to mine explained. So I am hoping that I can get some assistance here.

I have a Windows XP PC with 2 user accounts - one for me and one for my wife. I have 4 devices that sync to the 2 accounts today as follows:

- My iTunes account/library
1. iPhone - synching Outlook contacts, ringtones, videos

- Wife's iTunes account/library
2. My iPod - synching music
3. Wifes' iPod - synching music
4. Baby's iPod - synching music

There is no music in my iTunes library as all our music is on her library. What I want to do is sync some songs to my iPhone by connecting it to her iTunes library. I want to continue to sync my other data on my iTunes account. Is there any way that I can do this without iTunes prompting to delete all data off my iPhone when I attempt to sync music from her iTunes library to my iPhone?

I saw the method posted in many places where you change the persistent ID and use a HEX editor, etc.

... but would that method applied to my wife's itunes library not make the devices 2,3,4 unsychable afterwards?

Thanks.
