    Hi

    itunes wont let me edit the data in 'get info' for my videos which i add to the library via an external hdd. The only way it let me change it was if i copied it onto my HD, which i dont want because all my movies and tv shows add up to around 30gb and i only have a 128gb ssd.

    Is there a way around this. Note the ext. HDD i used to add to itunes was of NTFS format, didn't think that was important.

    Thanks

    My guess would be that OS X has read-only support for NTFS, so it can't change a file's metadata that's on a NTFS drive.
