I have 40Gb of music saved on an external hard drive. I know that my files have to be in my iTunes (iTunes is on my laptop) in order to transfer it to my iPod. I do not have 40Gb of space on my laptop.
I can tranfer chunks of files to laptop, then to iTunes, maybe 8Gb at a time, but is there another way? A better way????
My friend was wondering if I can install iTunes into my external hard drive. But when I transfer it, it will be going from external, through the laptop, to the iPod -- both connected by USB cables. It feels like there's a good risk of transfer error.
