Move iTunes audio files between hard drives via script
Authored by: Kimhill on Sep 29, '05 06:23:37AM
"I would be so delighted if I could simply keep my favorites on my internal laptop hard drive so they would always be with me."

What we really need is a transparent way to keep a subset of the main library on the laptop. The best way, I think, would be the ability to specify that certain playlists are stored on the internal HD. I don't believe there is any good scripting solution to this problem -- Apple would have to help.

That's a really good idea. Treat the laptop similarly to the iPod. The only real issue I can see is, how are you going to push the updates to the laptop? Over the network would be pretty slow (well, I guess compared to my USB 1.0 to my iPod via the Quicksilver, it might be a bit of an improvement :-).

In any case you should submit that to Apple. There is some precendence for this approach--MSft's licensing of Office now acknowledges you may install it on desktop & laptop.

"how are you going to push the updates to the laptop?"

For me, as for many out there, the laptop is the main computer. So updating both locations is no problem. iTunes would know that it has to replicate certain playlists to two locations.
