iphone and external hard drive storage question
i am almost completely out of hard drive space on my macbook pro. last evening i went through deleting songs, photos, and anything i could find that was marginal and still was only able to free up 4g.
my question is, having a 16 g iphone, i have put about 11 films into itunes and have about 20g of music, of which i transfer 6 movies onto the phone along with more than 3 g of music.
what i see as the best solution is to move the 11 to 14 g of movies out of itunes and onto an external hard drive. then when i sync the iphone just not have the sync movie tab checked and whatever movies i have on the iphone stay as they were. then when i want to change i move them back and forth.
this is probablyt such a dumb question i'm almost embarrassed to ask but having moved recently from pc to mac i was wondering if there's something i'm missing just in case there's an even simpler way to do this without moving the movies back and forth?
i've already taken extra valium in preperation for any responses that make me feel more lame than i am...or computer illiterate!
