How to move an iTunes library to an external drive [CNET]


  • I have one library of itune songs on my computer and a different library of mp3’s on my external hard drive (not via itunes, just a folder of mp3’s not connected with any media player). Can I follow these steps to get my computer library onto the external hardrive & then will itunes be smart enough to see I have all these other mp3’s on the external drive and consolidate them?
