Synchronise a portable iTunes library
Authored by: knifehandchop on Feb 07, '07 03:58:15AM

Well, this is to store the bulk of an iTunes library on an external HD, so you'd only have one "iTunes" folder, in the ~/Music/ folder, which would mean play counts and ratings will always be the same, that was the main reason I came up with the process, as I only want <i>one</i> library, but different sets of data for it.

Also, wrapping the actions "Quit iTunes," "Open iTunes," and "Open Chronosync file" in an apple/automator script, and running that with Do Something When would be better, as then iTunes will repoint itself to the external HD when it is connected. And don't forget to "consolidate library" when you're connected to make sure CDs imported/iTMS purchases made when on the move are copied back to your external HD.
