Applications :: Share ITunes Library On Mac Partition With Windows Partition

Feb 10, 2009

I recently installed MacDrive on my Windows Vista X64 partition so that I could access my iTunes Library on my Mac partition. After installing iTunes on my Windows partition and pressing shift while it opened, iTunes asked me for an iTunes library file ending with the extension ".itl". Now, I do not have any files ending with this extension in my iTunes folder on my Mac partition. Is there anything I can do to make iTunes on Windows to read my music library on my Mac partition?

Applications :: Sync IPad On Mac / Windows PC And Share Library?

Sep 27, 2010

Is it possible to sync my iPad on both Mac and Windows, and to share the same library for both devices. I constantly switch between my desktop pc and Macbook Pro and it would be handy to get the same apps/music/movies on both, and being able to either sync my iPad on the pc or Mac depending on which one I'm using that day. Is this possible? Or can I only sync my iPad to one iTunes installation?

Applications :: How To Share ITunes Library On LAN

Jun 5, 2009

Out of the box, iTunes lets you share your library with up to 5 client computers. However, 5 is the max.

I need to share my iTunes library (or a music library set up in some other way) with up to 9 clients on a local network. Does anyone know of client/server software that will let me do that? I'm pretty techy, and can work at the terminal level, etc., so it doesn't have to be an off-the-shelf solution.

I thought I'd heard of people doing this, and done a fair amount of searching, but haven't been able to find anything suitable.


All computers are running 10.4.11.

Right now, we don't have internet access, and may not have it any time soon (I know, I know, it's the dark ages, but I'm having to deal with bureaucracy and privacy issues). So, something like SimplifyMedia probably won't work - it seems to be dependent on internet access.

We add music fairly often, and the person who adds music is not techy, so adding tunes/updating what the clients see is either automatic, or at least easy. And, changes need to be seen by the clients immediately, or at least quickly.

I can potentially set up a file share, though this isn't ideal. Has anyone shared an iTunes library this way?

ITunes For Mac :: Can't Share Library Anymore

Jun 23, 2014

Since I've upgraded to Mavericks and iTunes 11.2.1, I have been unable to share my library on my admin machine with any of the other iMacs in my class. I used to do this via sharing and my library would show up as being shared in the available column in the classroom machines. 

Now it doesn't show on any of the remote machines at all, despite them all having sharing on. I have tried to do this via Home Sharing but the client machines will not allow home sharing (error-3170).

Applications :: Two Macs To Share One ITunes Library?

May 14, 2010

I have two Macs, MacBook Pro and Mac Mini.I have all my music on MacBook Pro. I want to be able to access iTunes from Mac Mini. But I don't like Home Sharing, because it doesn't really sync my music, and that route keeps two separate libraries.

When I'm home, both Macs are connected to the same network. I want my Mac Mini to access MacBook Pro's iTunes Library, update new music from Mac Mini which gets reflected on MacBook Pro. So that if I consolidate the file from Mac Mini, it gets put into the hard drive of MacBook Pro.

I understand what I'm trying to do, doesn't actually put physical files on Mac Mini. If MacBook Pro is not in the network or is turned off, that I wouldn't be able to access MacBook Pro's iTunes Library.

I don't want to use any third party applications to "sync" my music. I want to be able to do it by using File Sharing and such.

ITunes :: Way To Share Library With Two User Accounts?

Apr 18, 2012

I have a single iTunes library on my Macbook Pro.  I would like to share between to user accounts, each with Apple ID's.  What's the best way to do so?  Right now, I've given the second user rights to read/write to the first users "Music" folder.  But when one user adds song files, the other must "Add Folder" in order to see the new purchases.  It's kind of putsy.  Is there a better way?

ITunes :: Share One Music Library Between Two Users On A Mac?

Jun 29, 2012

I want to set my wife up as a separate user on my mac and share my music file with her so we no longer mix up our iPhone apps. I don't want a second copy on my hard drive. I've tried one method on here HT1203 but it makes a second copy and fills up my hard drive. I do not want to share the whole media library just the music. There must be an easy way to use two iPhones with separate user ids on one Mac so we don't mix up our apps. I would have though that the great Apple would have just sorted this out when you plug in a different device.

Info:iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Hardware :: Multiple Computers Share ITunes Library In Time Capsule?

Jan 31, 2008

The goal: To have all computers in the house use the same itunes library. Now the new ReadyNAS by NetGear has the option to put all the itunes music on there, and it shows up on the network as a shared library. Is there a way for multiple computers to share the same library on a external hard drive, or in this case, time capsule. I can see where a networked itunes library (like a shared computer) would work just fine for playing music, but you run into problems when say, you want to transfer songs to a ipod, iphone, etc.

One option would be for one of the computers be the main music server, and have that computer be the one to do the music transfers, but what if that computer is off. Multiple computers on same network, sharing same itunes library, but still able to manipulate the files?

Sharing Mac ITunes Library With Windows PC

Mar 5, 2012

I recently purchased a 27" iMAC running OS X 10.7.3. This iMac is now connected to my home network/workgroup.

- I want to build a new iTunes Library on my 1TB internal Mac HD.

- I want my 3 non Mac Machines (1 XP Prof and 2 Windows 7 Home) to be able to view the contents of my new (not yet built) iTunes Library resident on my iMac and of course be able to

- play that content.

- have play counts from my Windows-based be saved back to my iTunes Library.

- be able to rate a song from any computer (Mac or Windows) within this iTunes Library and have that rating saved back to this iTunes Library.

I don't want to have to rely on iTunes "Shared Library" function. In other words I want all PCs to be able to read/write to the same iTunes Library file.Before I purchased my iMac, my iTunes Library existed on one of my Windows-file system external drives. The pre-requisites for allowing multiple Windows PCs to access/share/write to the same iTunes Library was to: 

- share the Windows folder on the external drive in which the iTunes Library file was stored (allowing network users to be able to change the files), and

- make sure all Windows-based PCs ran the same iTunes software version.

I don't want to change the version of Windows iTunes software from the currently installed 10.5.0 version.Can my Windows PCs access and utilize the same iTunes library file that I plan to build on my iMac hard drive? What older version of Mac iTunes software should I install on my iMac in order to allow the Windows PCs to access and use the iMacs iTunes library file?

Applications :: Migrate ITunes Library From Windows XP To MacBoo Pro.

Aug 7, 2010

I have searched and will search more.

I want to transfer my iTunes library from my PC to my MacBook Pro, and then set up my iPod Touch for the MackBook.

Most of the library is on a USB 1 terabyte drive. I am tempted to plug the USB drive into the MacBook and just copy my music directory over. Then make sure the path is set correctly on the MacBook's iTunes.

Is there a better way? I am wondering if this method will cause problems.

After I have transferred the library, I will deactivate my Windows XP pc in iTunes.

Applications :: Windows XP ITunes Doesn't See Library In External HD Via Airport Extreme?

Nov 24, 2010

I attached external hard drive to Airport Extreme, set up home network and mounted the hard drive. My MacBook Pro can see the drive and all contents, including iTunes library. Our home PC which is running Windows XP also recognizes the drive and can see iTunes library in My Computer. Here is the problem. When I try to chose which iTunes library to open (Shift+click) in Windows XP, the library on my external HD is not visible so I cant open it! I see the cover art and music folder, just not the actual library. What am I missing here? I can see it in My Computer, why not in iTunes?! I need to link my external library to XP. Connecting external directly to PC will not work because I have a Time Capsule there.
