Consolidating multiple itunes music folders
By default, your i Tunes XML is stored at these **standard locations**: - **Windows**: `C:\Users\ ` *Your User Name* `\Music\i Tunes` - **OSX**: `Users/` *Your User Name* `/Music/i Tunes` # Troubleshooting In most cases, your playlists should be imported once Roon is watching your i Tunes XML.
The two most likely issues relate to a) i Tunes XML not syncing or b) Media files not stored with XML ### Testing Your i Tunes XML Sync If you're having trouble importing or syncing your playlists into Roon, it's a good idea to first confirm your XML is being updated by i Tunes.
If you want to know more, or if you're having a problem setting up i Tunes sync in Roon, read on!
# Setting Up i Tunes i Tunes can create a file called an *XML file*, which contains a list of all the songs in your i Tunes library, as well as all your playlists.
The new implementation takes a simpler and more balanced approach.
It uses the i Tunes XML as a source for _additional_ information about your files, and to support importing of playlists, but uses Roon's folder-watching infrastructure to locate the actual files.
Recent versions of i Tunes do not create the XML file by default, so you will need to ensure the file is generated by checking this screen and making sure the _Share i Tunes Library XML_ option is checked.
This worked for some simple use cases cases, but it also caused a lot of problems.
