pardon my french...but GOD DAMN SON! That's a ton of music, movies, and more haha. I only have 1800 songs and like two videos in mine. I'm only rocking a total of 10GB or so. Then again, I'm a complete and utter metal head so there's only so much music out there for metalheads

You're right; way too much music. However, I just received a 1TB internal drive for Christmas -- need to fill it!

What type of metal do you prefer?

I'll listen to all kinds of metal. But I'm a more recent metal kind of guy. Death Metal, all the different types of core metals, and so on. Personal favorites are Lamb Of God, August Burns Red, As Blood Runs Black, Chelsea Grin, WhiteChapel, and so on. Are you a metal listener yourself?

I don't know the total size, because I have everything unorganized right now and split into four libraries on three different drives, 2x 1TB and one 2TB externals. I'd guess the total size is just at 3TB for everything combined, mostly in TV and Movies. My library doubled in size over the past year thanks to Blu-ray rips. I've also been working on re-ripping CDs to Apple Lossless, but that's a slow process and low priority for me.

I recently moved and haven't bothered setting everything up yet because it's kind of a pain. I'm living off what's on my iPhone for now. One resolution for the new year is to get around to organizing my iTunes library again.

My iTunes folder is probably around 300 GB. I do have a lot more video (700 GB more, 200 GB of it being DVD disk images I put on my computer via RipIt), but it's not in iTunes format.

Nice! Do you possess an eclectic mix or is your library genre-specific?

Could you send the BBC some copies of the early Dr. Who episodes that some idiot destroyed?

Love to see a pic of how you store them all! That's gotta be one gigantic power hog or heat generating monster!

I used to have 200gb TV+film and 35gb music. But I recently lost my external drive which had all my videos on, so I'm down to 35gb!

Maybe a bit more once I rip my videos off my iPod...

38.7 GB of music and 318 GB of movies and TV but I don't use iTunes for that. The video collection has really started sky rocketing since I began saving all my shows and films in 720p.
