i currently have a PC running Vista
and i have my entire iTunes libary on my HDD
ive been drooling over the possibility of getting a Mini Mac
and connecting it to my second monitor
anyway what i want to know is there any way to have my iTunes libarary that is on my PC to transfer/sync with the Mini Mac?
that way both of them will have the same libary?
and to set it so that it will actively update when both machines are on
i.e: if there is a new album that i added to my PC, the Mac will add it to its libary and vise versa
QUOTE Thanks

You can share the same library, I think, if the external drive is formatted FAT32. However, the bigger challenge are the updates. I'd give it a try, keep you library backed up on your mac first. However, with iTunes now you can leave iTunes running and use the Home Sharing, that might help you out too.
