These are potentially stupid questions, so please bear that in mind. I'm setting up a music server using a mini and probably an external drive. This is a dedicated device; no need for other computing tasks. My question is, can iTunes read the songs from both an internal and an external drive (if the library of music is spread across both)? If not, and I choose to just put all of my music on an external drive (most likely), how do I set it up so that iTunes always rips music to and reads from this location, including all metadata? Obviously this is all in Preferences, but the reason I'm asking is so I don't miss something really small -- a box that goes unchecked, some detail about metadata and ID tags and artwork and such that gets by me -- that seriously screws me up after I've ripped 800 CDs. I would like to get the loading process right the first time. Thanks in advance for the help.
