soeclectic posted a topic in General ForumI have 5000 Lossless iTunes on an External Drive. I have a Mac Mini. I want a second backup in case this drive is damaged or dies. Uploading Lossless to the cloud is not practical. I want to copy the files from the existing External Drive to a second External Drive. Or, from the External Drive to DVD disks. iTunes used to have that but they got rid of it. My computing skills are not advanced and I will not understand highly technical or complicated responses. Is it possible to revert back to an older version of iTunes that has the copy to disk ability?
I am setup on a wireless Mac system consisting of the following: Mac Mini using Snow Leopard; Macbook Pro using Lion; Mac Time Capsule; iPad Mini and iPod Touch. i use iTunes 11 on all. My Mac Mini is being used strictly as a music server and is connected directly to my stereo system. I use my macbook pro as my everyday computer but it also has my iTunes library on it. My music consists of uncompressed CD rips as well as hi-rez files. I have Home Sharing enabled on each computer/device. I like to keep the same library on each computer and looking for the easiest way to do this. Due to some issues I've encountered transferring files (copy and paste) through my home sharing network, I usually rip to each computer separately. This is a major inconvenience. It would be great to have a way of it automatically and wirelessly updating one computer as music files/CD's are added to the other computer much the way iCloud works. When I initially set things up, I had my iTunes library on one computer and copied the whole works over to the other using an ethernet cable connected between computers. This worked well, but I prefer not having to do that each time I add a new CD to my library. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
