Specs: Windows Vista
I currently use an external USB drive for my iTunes. I have the drive mapped to "C:\Users\{ME}\Music\iTunes" so that it not only uses the portable drive as he music folder, but for the Library, Album Art, & Settings. Thus when I add songs from any of the 3 computers I use it with, it's in the library & play count on all of them.
I recently moved my iTunes drive onto a NAS (Network) drive, but I can't see the mapped network drives in the Disk Management Console.

Is There A Way To Map A Network Drive To An NTFS Folder Like You Can With Local Drives. I tried mapping it with Subst, but it still doesn't show up in the Management Console > Disk Management snap-in

P.S. I think I've done something similar in Win2000 but don't remember how, but I'm pretty sure it's different for Vista anyways.

You cannot make a network drive appear as part of another local drive on your system.

However, one thing you can do is move the location of your documents folder. If you were to do that, you could have your documents folder (including your music) on the network share.

In vista the Music folder isn't in the Documents folder but next to it in the "Users\User Name" folder, but you can change it's location individually which should work - did work. This is much better anyways because the rest of my Documents/Downloads/Pictures folders I use when not connected. That's for the solution.
