I'll probably be there in the next 6 months, I am at 8.97. I seem to add about a gig every 6 months. That seems right, I have been using iTunes since I started college and this is my senior year. I guess when I hit 10gig mark it will give me an excuse to buy a new iPod.

Man, I feel like a glutton. 28.01GB of usage. 6926 "songs" (includes audio-book chapters and a few radio commercials that I wrote for my company.). 26.3 days worth. Thought I had converted most of my CD's to iTunes, but with the moving process I think I came across another 50 to 100 CD's that need to be done.

Given what is going on in my life, I have found that I rather enjoy music and such over TV. So I have about 6 months of listening ahead of me. :D

Large music libraries are all fine and dandy until you outgrow the iPods.

There's nothing more annoying than having to choose which of my babies (tunes) gets left off each sync. :(

I am finding it fun to create lists of my music.

I may have to breakdown and get the iPod Photo 60gb in order to have room for my tunes and photos.

That is an insane size! How many iPods do you own??? :)
Just one, a 1gb Shuffle (it has autofill with on-the-fly downsampling to 128AAC).

Thinking of getting a 60/80gb iPod but am put off by reported sound quality issues. Am also waiting to see if iTunes 5 brings autofill to all iPods.

Have just ordered some new 300gb Seagates (for music alone) + the 2 x 120gbs already in the G4. I don't store any video on the Mac at all.

Wow, I am jealous! I should burn the video off onto DVDs but it is just so hard to find the motivation! I'll do it this summer, my hat off though on the insane amount of storage.

4832 songs, 55.82Gbs. That's down from roughly 70gbs a few months ago. I'm still in the process of "trimming" my music library, removing all the crap etc.

Have quite a few Lossless albums but they tend to drain the battery on my iPod very quickly. Sound issues still exist on the iPods, yes. I've had 2 in a row with audio problems :mad:

I am up to 23.94 Gb with 4,973 Songs, lasts 13.6 days. :p But sadly I just recently outgrew my 20Gb iPod. :eek:

I guess this means I'll just have to go get a new 40Gb one! :cool:

I have 8.2 gig, 1453 songs on my new mac mini. I have my mini hooked up to my stereo and it is a great way way to listen to music. I discovered this program called album art finder, that puts the cover art in the itunes window. After ripping a bunch of CD's I decided I needed the album art, so I've been busy with that program.

Congratulations. I remember that I was quite happy when I broke 10 gigs, then quite sad when I realised that I could not fit it all on my 10 gigger... :(

Now I am at

Question: can iTunes import from more than one drive at once? On my PC i have two... so if I could import there and then transfer to PowerBook... :rolleyes: or something like that. Also, plenty of people here have dual drives on their Macs. Seems like something that would be nice to have there.
