Can I sync content from an external hard drive to my iPod?

Recommended Posts

I would like to have all of my music and picutres available to me on my 60 GB iPod but I can no longer keep these growing libraries of music and pictures on the hard drive of my PowerBook because I've run out of space.

 

Can I put my iTunes and iPhoto libraries on a firewrie enable external hard drive and retain full fuctionality of iTunes and iPhoto as well as when I sync my iPod capture all my music and photos?

i have been thinking about that for a while now. i want an external HD for all of my media junk. i was talking with my uncle(also a mac whore) and he told me as long as i copy the music file into the HD i will locate it and read from it just fine.

It should do as long as you do so through the iTunes settings (which will move your files for you also if you let iTunes keep your media arranged for you).

Yes, I'm doing it as we speak. If you go into preferences, you can switch your itunes folder to somewhere other than the music folder on your internal hard drive. Works very nicely.

Yes, you can move the library and then tell iTunes where you put it.
