I have been spending money on iTMS at a ridiculous rate... :eek::apple:



None of my music is from illegal file sharing! :cool::(

iTunes is pretty sluggish even with the songs distributed in RAID 5, AMD 64 X2 6000+ (2x 3ghz cores), 2 gigs of ram, 1ghz FSB, in win XP. Should I switch over to Win XP 64 bit when iTunes 64 bit comes out? :confused:

What's your iTunes Library size?

Any remarks about speed, keeping track of songs across multiple hard drives? Problems fetching album art, trouble tagging songs, any good iTunes utilities that you have found useful? Did you import your music from CDs or WMA's, if so, how fast?

This should be a good thread!

Well my library is about 1% as big as yours, so this probably means nothing, but I never experience any slowdown or anything. It's all on one drive too, so that could explain it.

A year's worth of music? Nice. That if probably the biggest collection I've seen in my life.

I have 1978 songs. :)

My hard drive is almost full on my PB so it can't really grow right now but once I get a MB it will grow again:)

I think the question should be "How many GOOD songs do you have in iTunes"

1815 songs, 6.2 days, 9.11 GB
plus
60 videos of various length from my son playing golf to full length films, 12.45 GB
