Auto update from a folder look up
Authored by: cwachs on Nov 30, '04 11:09:50AM

I'm after an auto updating cmart playlist that will add songs that are placed in a folder on my hard drive. I run a copy of iTunes on a G4 that is just hooked up to my stereo. I manage my MP3's from my laptop (rip them, change tags, add cover art, etc) and then copy them to the G4 hard drive. I currently have to TimBukTu into the machine and drag those new songs to the iTunes window. Is there a way to have a smart playlist scan a folder or drive for new mp3 or aac files?

There isn't a way to have iTunes do this, but you can do it with a folder script. http://www.malcolmadams.com/itunes/itinfo/folderaction01.php descripbes the process and has a script to download.
