    Once I put a file in iTunes (like from my "Users>mrat93>Movies" folder) and now it's in both in "Users>mrat93>Movies" and "Users>mrat93>Music>iTunes>iTunes Music>Movies" folders, do I need to keep the file from "Users>mrat93>Movies"? Thanks.

    Thanks. Is there any way for me to access the files other than going to "Users>mrat93>Music>iTunes>iTunes Music>Movies", iTunes, or Front Row?

    you should be able to right click on the movie in itunes, and select "show in finder"

    Do you mean can you play your files in any other applications? Otherwise your question makes little sense. :eek:

    I meant maybe a shortcut to the actual movie in my "Movies" folder so it doesn't take up space.

    why not add your itunes movie folder as a stack in your dock.

    No, and I assume that you have backed-up the original file to some other disc anyway. Back up your data before you lose it!

    I'll get around to that as soon as my dad agrees to split a Time Capsule with me!
