iTunes library on 2 externals

Hi there

I have two external hard drives and on each of them I have my entire music library. Since I've always only one of the drives connected to my computer, it would be nice if iTunes would automatically search in the connected drive for the music library. So basically each titel has two registered locations and if one of them isn't available, iTunes is looking in the other one. Is something like this possible?

Not that i know of but if you hold the ALT key and open itunes you can choose where your itunes folder is. If you've always got your external connected you'll only have to do this once and if you change drives just repeat the process.
