2 computers with iTunes

by Kirk69 / March 2, 2006 9:22 PM PST

Hi, I would like to have 2 computers with iTunes.
One at the office and one at home.
My question is how can I get all the same songs onto 2 computers, and how to maintain the same music on both when I download music?
Please help me.

Itunes is different from XP to OSX.

Look at the default storage folder. Make sure the music is put in the default folder on the second machine. Or you can designate where iTunes is supposed to look for the music. I actually specified/created a specific folder on my second machine.

Open iTunes, click Edit, Preferences. Click the Advanced tab. On that page, note the General tab and look at the location iTunes stores the music. On the right click the Change button. Browse until you find the folder where you want the music stored.
