Hello, I am looking for pointers from experienced users on managing media on my My Book World Edition. I have successfully installed the devide on my network and have moved my pictures, music, and videos to the My Book public folders. I can see and access them successfully. What I need is some help in theory on how to organize and synch it.
I currently have several deviced that are on the network:
1 Windows Vista Desktop using Windows Media Player
2 Windows Laptop using iTunes and synched with iPhones
1 Play Station III
Currently all of the music is in .WMA format since it lived on the Windows Vista Desktop. I guess what I need to know is how to best manage and synch the music between all of the devices. For instance hsould I remove the local files from the original PC and point Windows Media Player to the My Book? Or should I continue to rip to the desktop and manually copy the files up? The main problem I think will be iTunes since it (I think) does not read WMA files and we had to convert the Media Player library to iTunes on the laptop.
Also, since I amusing the World Book as a media server, should I create a separate back up somewhere else? Or is it better to synch everything to the desktop and just use the World Book as a backup?
