Basically, here's the situation. I've finally filled up the 160GB HD on my Macbook. I have a 320GB iOmega in waiting and want to transfer all of my movies (104 of them ) onto the portable HD so I can just watch them/sync off there. How would I go about this?

Besides, this is really in the wrong forum. I'll move it to where you'll get more subject matter experts looking at it.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Thanks, I was just saying "anyone" because there seemed to be a lot of people in that forum. I was a bit undecided what section to use as well, it kinda crosses over into both. I thought Movies and Video was more towards the editing of, rather than actual movies etc. But yeah, thanks anyway

Yeah, the Apple Notebooks forum is more aimed at hardware issues.

louishen - I think since iTunes has updated, the post you recommended has now changed. It does not give me an option as to which folder I want it in.

Does anyone else know a solution? Under FILE/LIBRARY it says 'Consolidate Library...' and 'Export Library...' When I click consolidate, I get this message.



Any help would be much appreciated, thanks for all those who have contributed so far.
