    Does anyone know of a way to get itunes to automatically save video files to an external drive, while keeping audio files in the internal?
    At the moment I copy video to the external, delete the original from the itunes folder then play the file from itunes and then find the copied file, which takes a while...
    I tried making aliases of the Movies and TV Shows folders and pointing them to a folder on the external but TV shows ended up in a folder within the itunes folder, ignoring the alias and itunes refused to save movies, showing a message saying the required folder can't be found.
    I know I could just move entire itunes collection to my external drive, But I like to listen to music without the drive switched on.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
