Sharing music throu Itunes

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
If you didnt already know Itunes gives you the ability to share music from ones library to another on another computer within the network.. well i got it working today between my PC and Macbook. Im trying to find a way to to easily share music between computer because i dont want to fill my laptop with music but i like to download somethings on it and burn cds from it. But i noticed that you cant take music off of the shared library, or burn it to a disc or anything just listen to it. Is there an easier way to share the music so i can acces both computers to one ipod, cd, ect.? if not... could i buy an external drive such as the 400 gb Buffalo networked drive and save everything to that.. can i access that from both computers and have it work?

Well you could just share the folder where your music is located. I don't know wether you can do that with a PC-Mac combination though...
