Hi

Is it possible to share Itunes music library between three accounts on same computer so if my wife logs into her account she can see my music library

Imac 27, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    This should help:

    iTunes: How to share music between different accounts on a single computer

    Note that when it says "publicly accessible location", it needs to be a place where everyone has read and write access. The most common such place is the Shared folder in the Users folder, but you can place the music elsewhere if you change the access permissions manually (don't start tinkering with permissions unless you're confident you know what you're doing and can reverse things if they get messed up).

    Regards.

    I am trying to allow my iTunes Library to be used by both me an my wife. I followed the directions in the article you referenced, but I can only see the songs I had in my library that now resides in the Shared Folder, and my wife can only see the songs that she just imported into the shared library. The Shared Folder has read and write permissions for both of us. Any help in fixing this would be appreciated.

    Thanks -
