Ext hard Drive wont show on Itunes

Postby welshrobbo » Wed Apr 24, 2013 8:18 am


I have installed Itunes using PlayOn but when I open Itunes and try and guide it to the music on my Ext Hard drive it doesnt show as an option? The drive does show on the Mint desktop. Are there any settings I need to change?

Itunes is probably the only windows program I need so would be good to just get this one working.

Thanks for your help,

Not sure but thought I read iTunes is problematic running thru wine and a no-go?
Could be wrong but thought I read too many issues and unsolvable.


Many alternative music programs support ipod devices. But not the actual program itself.
That's the trade-off when being locked into a walled garden.
