I have 3 computers (a G3 iMac desktop, a MacBook Pro, and a MacBook Air). The laptops run Mac OS 10.5 Leopard with iTunes 10 and the iMac runs 10.4 Tiger with iTunes 9.2.1. I also have 2 iPods, an iPad, and an iPhone 4. I also use a NetGear NAS to share my files and store large project files and archives. It's difficult to remember what device is synced to what library. How can I keep just one library somewhere (preferably on the NAS) but be able to add to it from any machine and sync all my devices from it?


iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 2 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD, iTunes 9.2.1

    Not easy because in order to open just one library file you would have to be running the same version of iTunes on all computers which would be limited to the lowest version supported by your computers (the G3).  Try to open a iTunes 10 library with 9.2.1 and it will refuse. This in turn might not support your equipment.  Even if you can do this you would have to make sure only one copy of iTunes was running because the library file cannot be opened by multiple copies of iTunes at the same time.
