iTunes importing


Political User

I would like to add my 12 GB's of music to Itunes play list, but i would prefer it not to import and download it all to my laptop as then my laptop is full, with no other space left.

How can i tell it to just add them and add a pointer to the mounted smb drive?

If there is no way, can anyone offer a good app for Mac OS X that can do that what i want?


I may actually be insane.
You can use a shared mount, just make sure that the following option is unticked in iTunes:

Found in Preferences->Advanced

Alternatively if the host machine is running Windows or MacOS you can open iTunes on both and just stream the music across the network (make sure the music host machine is set to share music and the laptop to look/search for music, these options are in the iTunes preferences under sharing) this is what I do, works great :)
