The Next Track podcast on storing media on a NAS


Recommended Posts

In our latest episode of The Next Track podcast, we looked at storing media on a NAS, with a special focus on iTunes media.

 

Episode #39 - Storing Media on a Network-Attached Storage Device

 

We also discuss an AppleScript that you can use on a Mac to ensure that any external volume is mounted before iTunes launches, to prevent iTunes from losing track of your media file location.

Would it be possible to show that AppleScript or attach a link to it here so we don't have to listen to the podcast?

 

That has been a major PITA in the use of iTunes - if you forget to mount the NAS with the iTunes media folder prior to opening iTunes, iTunes creates another media folder link on the hard drive of your computer. Very frustrating.

You don't have to listen to the podcast, although you might want to to understand how this script works. There's a link on the episode's web page, which is in my original post.

Thanks!
