Ok, I have two Mac's....a MB Pro, and a Mac Mini. The MM has ALL of my iTunes files stored on it, in it's entirety.

I just want to have some random music on my MB Pro. Is there a way I can drag a playlist from my Mac Mini to my MB Pro besides burning a CD/DVD of the files?

I see the Mac Mini songs on my iTunes Sharing Folder on my MB Pro.

    If you want to be able to create playlists separately from those on your mini, you have to copy the tracks to your MacBook Pro, and it can't be done via iTunes Sharing. So unless I'm not understanding what it is you want to accomplish, no, there's no other way.

    If you don't mind copying the random music into another folder on the MM, thus being a bit redundant and taking up more space, that you want on your Mac Book Pro here is my solution.

    Copy what you want into another folder on the MM.
    When networked, mount the MM as a network drive.
    Open the MBP iTunes and designate its Library as being in the folder on the MM.
    Should work this way.

    If you really want randomization of the music in that folder you could play with Automator to replace those files at intervals. Not entirely sure how I would achieve that, but it should be possible.
