Determining Tracks To Sync - SLOW

I have my library on a HD attached to my router. It is not a NAS.

Whenever I sync my iPhone 4s or my iPod Classic I hang for 5 - 10 minutes on "Determining Tracks to Sync".

I am at the current version of iTunes.

Once it is done determining tracks to sync, it copies the tracks over at about 1 per second. So I know the drive is not slow.

Any ideas on how to speed this up?

I have scoured the internet high and low and have only found my question, not my answer.

You speed it up by having the drive connected to your computer, not the router, using the same drive letter.

If you must use the router, perhaps an upgrade to a N router would help some. Though not a lot.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
