    Hi
    When I play movies with .mp4 format in iTunes from my external hard drive, iTunes will copy it to an own folder 'Movies'.
    How can I prevent this?
    I bought this HDD to save my movies on it, to keep my MacBook Pro clean :)

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks a lot! Really helped me out!
    Can I ask why I have to uncheck the first box?

    Thanks

    If iTunes isn't copying files, that means it's not naming or organizing them, either. I find it better to leave both unchecked and manage my media files using my method, rather than let iTunes screw it up.
