Podpress not updating itunes
If you're asking some sort of different question, maybe you should make that question clear. That wont work when I use Google Music Manager and have my cloud music sync to my hard drive. (I'm running i Tunes in Windows) I had to do it the hard way after running a program to remove duplicates from my computer.
I changed the location of my i Tunes library in preferences.
I also have "Manually manage music" selected for my ipod, but I don't think that's related to how I store my music.
As an addition to the above answer: I put all new music to be added to the i Pod in a seperate folder then point i Tunes to this folder under "add folder". Click Start, click Run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK. Select all the files in the folder, and then click Delete on the File menu. Note: Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.
If you'd read my question (and not only the title), you would know that I only use i Tunes to sync i Pod (as I can't just drag and drop my music into it).
