Share iTunes library with OS X and Windows via a server
Authored by: renderhead on Jul 21, '07 03:15:39PM

I discovered a perfect use for this tip: sharing an iTunes library between the Mac and Windows partitions when using Boot Camp.

Rather than using a server, I use a FAT32 formatted hard drive (internal on my Mac Pro, but you could use an external drive as well) to host my music. I follwed the directions as described, copying the library file to the shared drive, and now I can play my music when I'm booted into OS X or Windows on the same computer. Since you can't log into both systems simultaneously, there is no risk of corruption to the library from two users accessing the same library.
