Hi,
I'm after some help please.
I have my iTunes music stored on a Time Capsule, this is where all newly imported music goes. I currently have a PowerBook G4 running Leopard but I've just bought a Mac Mini because I use an ipad most of the time downstairs. I want to keep the music on the Time Capsule but be able to see it on the Mac Mini and be able to sync my iPhone and ipad, can someone tell me what I need to do please? Do I need to de-authorise the iTunes on the PowerBook?
Many thanks

Make the Time Capsule available as a drive, launch iTunes on the Mac mini with the Option key held down, and point it to that instance of the library. If the version of iTunes on the Mac mini is newer than that on the PowerBook, you may not be able to use the library on the PowerBook afterwards.
Do I need to de-authorise the iTunes on the PowerBook?
No.
