Consolidating multiple itunes music folders
I also now have songs from several hundred CD’s on my new Mac Mini that aren’t on either my i Phone or my i Pod.
I would like to have everything in a central location be it the networked hard drive or the Mac Mini, although my preference is the networked hard drive.
It will maintain various files which will contain information about the content in your library.
Every household does not require more than a single computer that can run i Tunes.
i Tunes will write those files in a format that is easily readable so that all other applications can also get a compiled list of the content of the library.But, there are cases when it is required to stream videos and music to devices that may be connected all over the house.If a house has more than one personal computer to manage, you can then consolidate the libraries of i Tunes from multiple devices into one single library on a selected computer.Just copy sub folders from your Music folder on one computer to the corresponding folder path on the other computer.For Win 7, the i Tunes 11 Music folder's default path is C:\...\...\Music\i Tunes\i Tunes Media.
