What is consolidating on tunes
When i Tunes finally came up, all of my files were there with the ratings, playcounts and playlists intact!I did "get info" on a few files to verify that the file path was updated correctly with the new hard drive location. I then synced my i Pod which took a while as every MP3 file had to be updated since the location tag had changed. Not every household needs more than one computer running i Tunes.
This took a few minutes and then I got a dialog box that stated that the Library file was damaged and that a new one would be created.
Will my MP3s be moved to logical file/folder locations based on the artist and album names?
How easy will it be to locate a specific MP3 file afterwards?
Due to the large size of most i Tunes libraries, consolidating them isn't as simple as burning a CD and loading it on the new computer.
Luckily, there are a number of methods--some free, some with small costs--that can make this process easier.
In fact, as it becomes more common to stream music and videos to connected devices throughout the house, more homes may have just one PC.
