One iTunes Library

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I currently have my PC setup with Windows 7 and Snow Leopard, and switch between the two quite frequently. I've been trying for awhile now to find a way to share one iTunes library between the two operating systems. I've tried pointing the windows version of iTunes to the Snow Leopard library and vise versa, but no luck. The only what i have found to keep the two "synced" is to copy the newest version of the library over to whatever OS has the old one (IE if I add songs on SL I'll copy the whole thing to Win 7). The reasoning behind this is I sync my iPhone daily, and add music here and there almost daily. Is there some sort of work around I can utilize so I essentially have one library and both versions of iTunes point to it?

I know somebody who has accomplished this by having his actual iTunes library stored on a server on his network at home. Both iTunes installs pointed to the same folder on the server. I imagine the same thing can be done with a separate hard drive or atleast a separate partition, formatted in FAT32(so that both O/S's have full access to it).

I had thought about trying FAT32, but wasn't sure if it would make a difference since my window's PC has mac drive, but I'm going to find a HDD like, right now to try it with.
