I assume that you are meaning that you are analysing the songs for BPM, cue points etc on your desktop and then transferring the songs to your gig laptop and having to do it all again.
If that is the case then you run the same system of transfer that I do.
What I do is download the songs, add then to my folders, analyse them and set cue points etc.
Now what I do is copy and replace the XML file and it will then all be the same on my desktop and laptop, and then all the info is sync'd and the same on both machines.
There are probably easier ways to do it with some sort of sync program, but it only takes me a few moments and it works for me.

There's no need to do that when using an external drive (which he is). The VDJ database is stored on the drive itself, so when you plug it in to another computer, all your data is there.
