    I have 9 external USB HDs plugged into my Mac and in Sidebar it shows them all seperate and it looks bad cause theres so many. Any program or anyway I can make it show like 1 Folder called "iTunes Server" or something and when u go into it then shows all the external drives? I just want something where it shows only 1 folder or something.

    I can do this now by hooking my USB hub to my Airport Extreme and then it shows up under Shared as 1 drive but when you click on it it shows all the HDs hooked up to it.

    Thing is I want to hook it up to my Mac not my router.

    Thanks!

    What about a folder (wherever you want to store that) with Aliases to those external HDDs?

    Then you put the folder into the sidebar under Places and remove the HDDs from Devices.

    EDIT: How do you make a Alias of an external HD?

    Go to Finder, select the HDD you want on the Desktop, not in a Finder Window. right click, select Make Alias.
