dapaintballer331 Posted February 9, 2007 Share Posted February 9, 2007 This is what I do, and it's been working great. Find a computer you never use, like some old old thing that can't do much. Reformat the hdd, and install xp. If the computer runs slowly then just put it into the "old" theme of xp. Get this computer an internet connection. If not ethernet, they make some easy to use wireless adapters for even $15 nowadays. Install pandoras jar, and get it working. Go to realvnc.com and get the free version. Go to start>all programs>realvnc>Real-vnc Server USER MODE. Add a password and encryption if you want. Now, once its working, turn the volume down to 0 in pandora, and unplug the monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc so its just the box running. From a LAN computer to go its lanip:5800. A java applet loads so you can control the computer if needed. Wait a week or so, maybe checking on it every 2 days. Plug in an external drive (if you don't feel like networking it) and simply drop its mp3 folder over the old mp3 folder you had before on your old hdd, and they should merge perfectly. I downloaded 15 gb, 5 from my old computer, and 15 (only about 10 gb were different songs) and they merged perfectly, forming the ideal music library.
