    Ok.. it seems like a great feature. You just click it and all your music in iTunes is copied into one folder, the "iTunes Music" folder. But there's a little problem, I click it in the advance menu, a pop-up appears, I click "Consolidate" and nothing happens. My iTunes Music folder stays the same. Is there any way to make this feature work?

    It is a great feature :)

    First you choose a different iTunes location for example an external drive. You make sure Keep iTunes folder Organised is checked, and also Copy New music to iTunes folder is checked.

    Then you click on consolidate and all your stuff copies over. I used this feature on my PC to copy the music to my Lacie drive, so I could listen to my music from my Mac Mini :)

    Ohhh I see.. thanks!!! ;)

    EDIT: I just did all the work in 5 minutes, I had many duplicated songs, so now I have everything in one place, and I have 2-3~ Gb more of HD. Thanks again :p
