Hi

I have a Imac and a Macpro and 2 Ipods. The problem is one is at home and the other is 3000 klm away. Can the 2 macs share the same ITune and can I keep them sync with internet??? If so what are the procedures....

Thanks

John

I use Windows Live Sync to keep my iTunes folders in sync but I only sync the folder that contains the actual mp3s/mp4s/etc NOT the iTunes Library files (xml etc) because those change in a more strange manner. I also have MobileMe so I just transfer over the library file every now and then when I feel like enough has changed from my primary machine. You could just sync the whole thing but use the manual sync option in Windows Live Sync, it's just finicky because both library files could be in use when Windows Live Sync updates them which could cause problems so it works better to decide yourself when to update the library files. The system works really well..
