    Hi there,

    I could not find a current thread on this so here goes.

    I have a macbook pro 250gb and i have about 70gb worth of music and i am a design student, so i have the adobe suite and many large documents thus my hard drive is very nearly full.
    I have everything stored and/or backed up on an external 1TB hard drive including some movies and TV shows however i cannot afford to put these files on my macintosh HD as they take up too much space.

    SO, my question is, can i make my music run through my mac HD as normal, AND also run my tv shows and movies thorugh itunes from my 1TB?

    i know how to do this through preferences but usually you can only run the itunes library as a whole through one hard drive, not pick out various media for different HD's

    many thanks in advance :)
