    hey, i have my iTunes music saved to my external hard drive which is plugged into my router.

    i can access the folders and play via 'readyshare' which is through my wifi network.

    what i was wondering is how i can play them by opening iTunes and having that detect the external hard drive?
    I've gone into preferences and set the library to use

    /Volumes/USB_Storage/iTunes Media

    but they don't show up in the music tab of iTunes.

    any ideas?
