I have moved all my media files (about 500GB worth) to a 2TB Time Capsule that also functions as my wireless router. The goal was to centralize all my media files so they could be accessed from everywhere and free up disk space on my PC. I have changed the settings in iTunes on my PC to use the Time Capsule Z: drive as the source for my music library. Streaming media over the network (e.g. Time Capsule to Apple TV) is actually quite fast.
However, when I connect my 120GB iPod to iTunes, it is taking upwards of 15 minutes to complete syncing songs to the iPod. Is this because iTunes is trying to compare the iPod index to the library stored on Time Capsule and the combination of disparate systems/drives and a wireless connection to the Time Capsule is causing a lag? Is there a configuration/setting I need to change in iTunes? Or am I going about all this the wrong way?
Any insight would be appreciated.
