I have my music collection on a portable HD, which I use at work and at home.

I add music and update file info at work, but I've learned that although I run the app from the portable HD the database info is kept in the User's Music folder on that machine. Thus, when I get home I don't have the up-to-date file info on my home mac!

Is there a way to change the default location for the database files that iTunes uses? If I could make the portable HD the default location I think I could access 1 constantly updated iTunes library without having to 'Add to Library' and import XML files.

Is this just wishful thinking, or is there a workaround or app which can do this automatically?

Thanks, Lee.
