How Should I handle my files?
So I'm not quite at the point of having a NAS but hopefully in the next year or so. I'd like to keep in mind the eventual migration of my iTunes Library over the the NAS but that is not of most import right now.
TV Shows: 608gb
I currently have all my music on a separate drive form my iTunes folder and I manage it myself. (after ripping a cd or something, I copy the files onto the Music drive and then I drag them into iTunes) But with the purchase of more and more music from iTunes (and especially since I am upgrading the bitrate of my matched music) I find that I want to just let iTunes managed all my music. And also copy everything i import into iTunes into the iTunes library so that I can eliminate a step or two.
SO, my question is, How can I do this and still retain my Movies and TV Shows on separate drives? When I moved my iTunes library to a blank 500gb drive and told it to consolidate the files, it pops up an error that says the disk isn't big enough. Which is valid considering my extensive video collection.

If I understand correctly, you are having a similar issue as another user, just take a quick look at this thread, you got to do is tell itune to no copy the files to the library and then you can have multiple HDs with all you media.
Sometime when I am alone I Google myself!!!

I use Plex for movies, TV shows and music videos. My iTunes library won't all fit on my internal drive, so I split it over multiple locations.
