10.4: Reduce iTunes skipping on an external drive
Authored by: cchristner on Jul 07, '05 01:45:14PM

I have a my music library on a 400 GB external 400/800 FireWire drive connected to an old G4 500/DP and have never had skipping probs. The only delays stem from my library being around 50K tracks which sometimes causes longer pauses between songs than would be the case if there were fewer. As for coasters, I frequently burn files from the drive onto DVDs in Toast while listening to iTunes and have not had one trashed disc.

Maybe it's because I'm running the drive on a PCI 400/800 FW card that makes the difference.
