I'm only recently getting into audio, iTunes and serious with my iPod since I got a new one recently. I had a pretty serious crash of a hard drive and lost all my MP3. But, since I had them all on my iPod, I used some software to retrieve them and now they are back restored (just cleaning up the mess that iTunes does when naming them). My question is this - I have a NAS with a "Multimedia" share, that I have all the songs in. When I open iTunes, it does see it under "Shared" which I assume is a Shared Library. Granted, I haven't actually "tried" this yet, will soon once iPod #2 gets here (holding out because I fear when I connect my ipod it will erase all the content and load with the new library which is still in beta lol), is it even possible to sync with a network library for your iPod? From what I have been able to find and read, it sounds like iTunes does not support syncing with a network-based/shared library. Can anyone shed some light on this situation, or perhaps some additional documentation I can read over? All the stuff I found online seems a bit confusing or not clear, made harder by the fact I won't try yet -edit- This is the drive I have and one of the documents describing how it's setup - http://forum.qnap.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=935 http://forum.qnap.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2684 -edit 2- If I have the Shared folder on the left, as well as if I manually set the iTunes folder within the properties to that device, and then add the folder to the library - seems a bit redundant? I wonder if that's why I have a bunch of duplicates showing?
