Im sharring my iTunes library from an external drive attached to my mac mini to my macbook. Problem is permissions on music and album artwork not purchased from iTunes. Songs still play on the macbook, but, no album artwork and iTunes refuses to sync those tracks to my iphone. Everything works great on the mini.
Is there an easy way to change permissions on all the music I didnt buy from itunes and the artwork? I really dont want to go through 30GB of music changing permissions.
A little background on my setup.
The mini I have setup as a media server in my living room. All media is stored on an external firewire drive. On the macbook I have the iTunes folder, itunes music folder and iphotos library from the external drive set as login items. The idea is I can make changes to itunes and iphotos and the changes take affect on both. It works great minus the problem with itunes. For some reason the permissions on things not bought from itunes are read only on the macbook.
Any help would be great! I have been trying to find an easy way to fix this for days
