I have just got an ipod, and itunes. i have about 6.35GB of music, but i only have 1GB storage space left on my computer HDD! when i try to put all my music in itunes, it makes another copy of my music, in the "my music" folder. this folder is named "!itunes". but itunes like backs up all my music, so i am left with around 12GB of music. is there any way to just put it on your ipod, or another program that doesnt do this? please help, i am desperate! please help, Gangstarrr
Hmm... Creating a separate folder for iTunes was optional for me. It asked me if I wanted to import my files into iTunes, and I said yes and then deleted the old files. I liked the way iTunes organized my music better than the way it was. If you have two exact copies of each song, you can just delete one version. If you are pressed for hard drive space though, you could do what a couple of my friends do. They upload their songs to their iPods, back up all their music on DVD RW, and then delete all the music from their computer.
just a idea but..... does itunes always make a empty folder named "itunes"? (sorry i have never used itunes) if it does, just let itunes make it's folder then cut and paste your music into it.
it doesnt make a blank folder, it makes a folder which has my music in it. but my music is still in the folder named "my music" i can drag n drop my files into itunes and listen to them and all that without itunes backing it all up (i think) but i dont like it. pyroshane, i have uninstalled itunes, if i install it again do you think that it may work like yours?
No clue, all I know is that both times I have installed it, it gave me the option to import my music. Personally, I let them import it and then deleted my old music files, I just like their method better.
you just have all kinda of problems, dont you ;)? All i can think of is do some hdd cleaning, or shell out for a nice external just to keep music and xxx on, not that you seem like the kind of guy who likes vin deisel :smokin:
I don't use iTunes myself, but I think that once you upload your music to your iPod, either burn it or delete it from your HD. See if you can clean out the HD from files that you don't use anymore (i.e. Games, movies, etc.)

Would have to burn it, deleting it completely without a backup copy is not an option, because retrieving songs from the iPod to your computer is a huge pain in the ass. Of course, it makes sense to backup all your music onto disks (either CD or DVD) anyway, so if something happens to your computer your music is not all lost.
Wow only one gig left wow. How big of a hd do you have? If I was you I would start deleteing A LOT OF CRAP ON YOUR COMPUTER. Oh I use iTunes and iTunes does not back up my music. When I installed it it ask if it wanted me to allow it to make copies of it and put all my music into its folder and I just said no, only get music from My Music folder and do not back it up. To do that since you have it installed just go to Edit, preferences, and then go to advance and UNcheck the box copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to libary. That should fix it.
Why not just get another hard drive? Something like this Just make sure you get one your mobo supports ...
