Hi there,

I have my iTunes library stored on an external server. When trying to sync, Media Sync only sees my local iTunes library, even though iTunes itself is set-up to use the external library.

Is there any way to change where the software looks for the library file (either the library file or the XML)?

I use both libraries and switch between them when I need to, so I can't really replace the local library (even with the data stored externally).

Cheers,

Rob.

Hi Rob,

If there is a library XML file in the standard location, Media Sync will use this file.

If there is no library file in the standard location, you'll be offered a chance to pick a different location.

In short:

1. Quit Media Sync
2. Move aside or rename the XML file here:
~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.xml
(and make sure iTunes is currently not using this file)
3. Launch Media Sync
In the Music/Podcast tab, select the location of your iTunes library.

Best.

Thanks very much Jonas! I'll give that a whirl.
