    Default iTunes Playing MP3s stored on a Windows Machine

    Hello,

    I am in a mixed marriage. By that I mean that I'm Mac & He's Windows.
    My husband has graciously ripped most of our 750 + CD collection to
    MP3 format and stored them on an internal hard drive on his Windows XP
    machine.

    My Mac and his machine are both on the same subnet.

    I can mount the volume and view the files, but if I try to get iTunes
    (4.0.1) to play them, it wants to copy the tracks to my local drive.
    I just don't have the disk space right now.

    Is there any way to get iTunes just to "share" the files?

    If not, does anyone know of another MP3 player for the Mac that might
    read those files remotely?

    I've tried iTunes help and Apple.com with no luck. I'm hoping
    someone here can help.

    Thanks in Advance.

    in itunes preferences, there is an option to not copy the mp3 files, as
    well as enable/disable organizing them. personally, i think these
    options should both be off by default, not on.
