Hi --I have done my research and still cant find the answer. PLEASE HELP. I Run OSX on my macbook pro and have 3 other MACS in the house. I have a new Airport Extreme and a Free Agent 1TB external drive hooked up to the Airport Extreme via the USB port. How do I get the drive mounted properly so that when I open all 3 MACS we all use and see the same iTunes account and info stored on the External drive. At this point I am losing way to much $$$ by deleting all my stuff off the Apple TV and having different things on different computers. PLEASE HELP this desperate DAD

DO NOT keep the entire iTunes library on the networked drive. Keep only the media folders there, and create aliases to them in the iTunes library folders on each mac.

If several machines attempt to access the same library file simultaneously, it will corrupt.

what if there are only 2 laptops accessing the drive during the day (home)? Is that the best way to go? --and still HOW do I do it properly.
