    how do i do that? It's currently in my music folder, i want to move it out. I changed the music folder successfully, but when i delete the itunes folder, it comes back with the itunes library.xml file and the other. HOw do i get these two to exist in another folder and get rid of the itunes folder in "my music" once and for all?

    the latest itunes on windows xp, thanks :bigthumb:

    So, you don't want to keep the iTunes folder in the My Music folder?

    If you just simply move the My Music folder even with iTunes in it, all of the pointers to that folder should be updated automatically.

    There should be a setting in iTunes to tell it where your music is stored.

    i moved the music fine, its the library's file that refuses to move...the one that keeps track of play counts and everything. I even reinstalled ituens, but it remembered somehow :(

    If you left the iTunes folder in My Music and moved the My Music folder, everything should have been redirected I always move the My Music folder out of My Documents and never had an issue even with iTunes.

    Like I said before there should be a place in one of the setup menus in iTunes to tell it where the iTunes folder is located.

    Apple software + actual customization = you lose.

    Apple only lets you customize shit that you can't possibly break. It's their design paradigm.
