Where Do I Store My Music

  NotSureBoutThis 05:22 27 Oct 2006


I have an Acer desktop with I think 2 drives C drive 68% & D drive 99% (Does this make sense?)

I am about to install itunes, so when I download music from itunes, do I save to my music then to the D drive?

No idea where to save to?

Thanks in advance

i have a similar setup and use the D-drive as a dedicated music drive (provided your drive is 99% free and not full!) i find this better as it leaves the C-Drive dedicated to system files etc.

With regards i-tunes, have you seen the news this week where they have made it so music downloaded from there store can only be played on apple software and i-pods...? this made me reconsider who i buy my music from!

Do you mean your D drive is 99% full?
I would download to c drive and back up the folder to the D drive.

Drive "D" is 99% free, is this where I save it to?

Yes it does not really matter as long as it's backed up somewhere else.

Hello ICF

Forgive me please, although I'm not sure what you mean when you say "Backed up somewhere else" you mean I have to save it to both drives C & D?

what ICF means is that any sane PC User has, what is known as, a Back-up.

This is a copy of all the Files, Folders, Movies and Tunes, stored on their PC. Some even keep a Back-up of the OS as well. What you store this copy on is a subject on it's own and subject to lengthy debate. I use an External Hard Drive & Dantz. Others swear by Acronis or Ghost. They all work, which is best is a matter of opinion.

What I mean is have two copy's of your music. What if say your computer would not boot up and needed a complete reinstall.You would then need to re-pay for all the music you have already paid for.

OK, thanks for that

I think I understand what you all mean.

When I download say from itunes to my ipod, I save to "my music" & then save to a disc, is this correct?
