    multiple drives for music path?

    I have my C drive and also a usb drive and would like to include music from each in the library. It appears that only one drive can be accepted for the path. How can I include both drives in the library?
    thanks

    I hope david will include this feature, maybe configuring multiple roots (eg DVD-ROM, HDD1, USB ecc)

    by the way you could map your USB device partition under a NTFS folder using disk administrator, I never did it but I know it is possible

    Well I use xp in italian, by the way the function should be under Administrative Tools, computer management, disk management (I guess).
    here you see a list of all the disks (removable or not). plug your usb storage and under disk management you'll find it, right mouse click on the disk and select "remove/add drive letter" or somthing like this; here you'll find "map under NTFS folder". simply create a new folder and the drive into it, it should work. remember that my indication may be wrong, i don't use windows in english
    hope it helps

    Trouble with that is, you may have to do that each time you insert the USB stick.

    That's what seemed to happen when I just tried it.

    I tried those steps and it would not let me check the ntfs file option. sounds like a solution though. any ideas?
    just figured it out-need to hit "add" in the screen prior to the assignment screen

    you can choose ntfs folder only if the partition is not write protected, e.g. a CD cannot be mounted on a ntfs folder, but my usb stick works

    i have an 80 gb laptop drive in an externalcase. I mapped it through an ntfs folder in my C drive, then listed the C drive in the music path in settings. the CF did not pick up the songs on the external drive.
