Hello all,
I have a pretty specific question that I'm hoping someone can answer.
I have about 40 gigs worth of music on my laptop and I just got an external drive. I want to keep all my music on the external drive so that it doesn't take up all the space on my macbook.
A lot of the music I get comes from local bands through torrents (all legal, of course). So what I'm wondering is how to store all the torrents on the external hard drive and still have them come up on Itunes.
Basically, the actual mp3 files are in the downloads folder & the itunes music folder.
Also, is there a way to get the torrent files and music from the itunes store to download directly to the external hard drive?
Any help is much appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks
