    Just got a time capsule and got some questions. I got it obviously for backup, but I also got it because of it's external hard drive capabilities. Right now I'm trying to make it so that the time capsule is my default location for my iTunes library. I have a couple of questions about it though.

    1. What steps need to be taken to do this? I read about different ways to do it, but have been unsuccessful in my attempts (basically because I can't understand how people explain to do it).

    2. Can this be done wirelessly? Right now the time capsule shows up as a shared drive and I was wondering how/if I could do this.

    I am running OSX 10.5.5 and any advice is good advice. Thanks in advance.

    1) In iTunes's preferences, change the location of your library. Then select Consolidate Library from one of the menus, and it will copy your entire library to the new location.

    It's says that my time capsule is a "read only". So I can't transfer the library over. I'm also trying to do this wirelessly. When you set yours up did you do it via wireless connection or did you plug it in? I don't know why this is so hard for me. Thanks
