    Question playlist split between 2 hard drives?

    hello
    im using a tablet PC as a carcomputer
    it has a built in 15GB drive which is now full of music
    i want to add an external drive if possible
    but i want to be able to see all the files from both drives

    ive been using mediacar but im open to using other software
    are there any front ends that will allow music to be split between two drives?

    Shamelessly stolen from the MediaEngine FAQ, but will work with any program

    2) Find and download a program called junction.exe from http://www.sysinternals.com and create hard links of folders (or files if you want).

    Those of you using Windows 98 / ME... for Pete's sake, upgrade!
