    Is there any automatic way to sync my iTunes music between my deskTop and my lapTop?

    Assuming your iTunes folder is under the Music folder in your home directory, I'd use an app called Synk. It synchronizes or backs up a folder of your choice. I do this with my music, pics, docs, safari and mail.

    It works great and is easy and free.

    Tho I gotta ask..why do you need to duplicate your files in 3 places?

    I have a G5 2.0, an iBook 700 and a 15G 3G iPod.

    I have all my music on a Firewire HD, hooked up to my G5 with my iTunes Library pointed at the FW HD. I also then mount the FW HD on my iBook when I need to access my music from somewhere on my AirPort network and I also have my iPod to use everywhere else. With an iPod, I never see a need to dupe my music collection. That's alot of GBs wasted.

    Just my 0.02 cents...
