    i know that if my movies in itunes are on an external hard drive and the hard drive isn't plugged in you cant watch the movies. but is there still any way to get the movies on to my external hard drive and still have them in itunes. even if i cant watch them without the hard drive. i have over 31 GB of moives and it takes up alot of space on my laptop. just want the bulk of the moives on my external where i have alot of extra room.
    does anyone know if this is possible?

    thanks
    jake

    Put the movies onto the external drive and then make an alias to it in your iTunes folder
