10.4: Reduce iTunes skipping on an external drive
Authored by: GEllenburg on Jul 07, '05 10:30:04AM

I can not confirm this.

Up until recently, all of my iTunes library (only the MP3s and AACs) were on a separate firewire drive, and I've got a lot of firewire devices (EyeTV, iSight, two Firewire VTRs, iPod) and I never noticed this problem.

Like the OP, my "iTunes Library" was also on my internal system disk.

But, as of yesterday, all of my hard drives are now in separate Firewire enclosures whereas the only internal drive is now my "superdrive".

I'm still not seeing this.

What could be happening though is that the firewire bus is getting overloaded.

Since my PowerMac has two firewire buses, I use one for storage and one for video with two separate 6 port Firewire hubs.

Not only does this keep things logically separated, but it's also saved me from all those reports of Firewire problems with Panther and Tiger back when they first came out.

Hope this helps.
