    Just got a call from my brother in college asking where he got the 10,000+ songs from. They're certainly not the ones on the hard drive I'm loaning him (I only put ~800 of my own on) and when he views the file info it doesn't have a location. Anyone know where these songs are coming from? (they're all divided in playlists).

    Most likely from other computers on the LAN.

    If other users on the LAN are using iTunes and have enabled music sharring, then your bro will see there shared music on his computer. He is free to listen to them but won't be able to make a local copy. Once he unplugs that ethernet (or goes out of Airport range), they're gone.......until he plugs back in!

    alright cool. He just added up all the songs and has something like 40,000 at his fingers. Neat feature.
