Hi, i was wondering if it is possible to make it so that my music is stored on my harddrive, organized by iTunes, and then video is stored on an external harddrive, and only is able to play when my harddrive is connected?

Thanks!

It's a bit late for me to test this but it won't hurt anything if you try it and it doesn't work the way that you want it to. Put the video on the external hard drive and organize the video the way that you like. I suggest one folder that says video with subfolders inside it. Make an alias of the video folder on your external drive inside the Movies folder of your User folder.
