A bit of an odd request....
My current laptop doesn't have much capacity (320gb 7mm drive), so I don't keep my full music collection on it. At home it's connected to a docking station containing a larger hard drive.
So all my FLACs are on the docking station. I transcode them into MP3 and store those on the laptop.
My current media player solution is to use Foobar for the FLACs, Windows Media Player for the MP3s.
But I wonder if a media player exists where it can autodetect the presence of another drive and swith libraries. e.g. so when I am connected to the dock, the player will use all the FLACs and ignore the MP3s, and when I am on the road, away from the dock, it will switch to the MP3s.
Bonus points if it also transcodes to Apple Lossless and can upload to an iPod.
Anything like this exists? Thanks in advance.
