    Hi everyone,

    I have 4 computers in my house. I have an iMac G5, which holds all of my music library, an iBook, a Powerbook, and a Dell running Windows XP. Until now, I've been using iTunes Music Sharing so everyone has access to the music. I would now, however, like to make it so that each computer is linked to the central library, and can add songs, sync their iPod, etc from the computer they most often use. However, I would also like the Powerbook to have a copy of the music library on its own HD so that I can take my music on the road.

    I have pointed my Windows XP iTunes to the iMac's library, but it only seems to be adding 3000 of the 7000 songs that we have.

    Is there a way to do all this?

    You can set it up so that their iTunes library will be your music but I dont think you are allowed to add music to your iPod from a networked library. I tried briefly a while back and couldnt get them to add. If someone has looked into it more, I'd be interested in trying it again.

    I believe a program called OurTunes (downloadable off internet) can do what you want. I could be mistaken though.
