Jim's a working stiff in IT during the day, and has been so since about DOS 3.0, but does his best to spend the magic hours out with a camera or two.
He lives in New Zealand with his lovely Luddite wife and three kids.
To get started, you will either need to have an active SMB network where you can transfer directly between OS X or Windows (click here for a simple PC to Mac file sharing guide), or use a hard drive that has formatted for dual compatibility between a Mac and Windows so that you can use it as a means of copying the data over.
If you have other music in your Macs i Tunes directory be sure to back that up before copying over the files from the PC so you don’t accidentally overwrite any files.
Many of the scripts can optionally display a progress bar while running.
You can run out of those bytes in no time at all, especially if you fill your laptop with multimedia files like music and movies – the types of files that you keep and manage using a multimedia manager like i Tunes.A quick look at the folder sizes inside my Mac Book hard drive shows that the i Tunes folder occupies a large area on that near-full storage space.To regain some room to breathe, I decided to move my collections to an external drive.If no specific tracks are selected the script will try to work with all tracks in the current playlist or sometimes the entire library.Some scripts offer a choice of track by track confirmation of changes or fully automatic processing of the selection.
