    I have some songs I want to add to my playlist in iTunes that I have stored on my 300gig external drive... I don't want to add them to my mac drive so that I can save space.....
    how do I do this?

    Open the iTunes preferences. Choose Advanced. Uncheck "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library"

    Easy :)

    yes thanks!
    I have seen this option hundreds of times and never thought to uncheck it!
    so stupid!
    but I have never tried this option before so I guess I never paid attention to it...
    Thanks again!
