I have the two boxes ticked for these settings in iTunes:
- *Keep iTunes music folder organized*
- *Copy files to iTunes music folder when adding to library*
I would like to manage my own folder structure for movies, with links in iTunes that point to the folders.
Is there a way to let iTunes manage my music but to manage movies on my own?
yes, piece of cake.
leave everything as it is and put your movie files where and how you want them. then, hold the option key while dragging the movies into an open iTunes window.
iTunes will index the path to the location of the original files but won't copy them physically into the iTunes media folder.
if you choose to keep the movies (or any other content you add this way) on an external HD, make sure the external is mounted on your desktop before you launch iTunes if you want to play that content.
