I have a macbook that I use to sync with my iPad. I want to start to get some of my media (music and movies) onto it. These files are located on a network share that is available through Finder. The share is on a Windows Home Server.
When I try to "Add Folder to Library..." I can select the folder, and click Add. This is where iTunes tries to get all the Album Art and Determine Gapless Playback ...blah blah - and this goes on for hours with hardly any progress (gapless was at 300 of 8355 after 5 hours).
What can I do to speed this up? It's on the same gigabyte switch so the network shouldn't be an issue.
I saw this issue on Apple's forums, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't anything I was missing. http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2564964&start=105&tstart=0
