I have a Sony Computer with windows XP. My C drive has about 16 GB and is almost full. It is partitioned and the D drive has 58.5 GB and is almost empty.

I just got an iPod with iTunes and it was installed on C. After downloading about 1 GB of music files from iTunes store, it occurred to me that my C drive is filling up and these files should be on D, but I can't seem to get them to go there and still work. I thought about uninstalling iTunes and trying to reinstall it on D, but I don't want to take a chance on loosing everything I already paid for.

Is there a way to move the music files or all of iTunes to drive D so the iPod can still access them? All I have on D at this time are a few photos and I still have 39GB of space on the iPod..

Make a folder on your d: drive called music. Then move all the music from where it is on the c: drive to the d:\music folder.

Then open itunes and click on Edit, then preferences, then click on the advanced tab.

Now change the itunes music folder location to d:\music and you should be all set.
