Hello! I'm new to these forums.. I've had my MacBook for 4 years as my main computer source. I basically only use it for internet/music & pictures. Well, it is finally slowing down, so I decided to purchase an external hard drive and put everything on that, rather than having it on my Mac hard drive, per suggestion. I don't know very much about computers, I guess. I chose to get a Western Digital My Passport, already formatted for Macs. It is USB powered, and once connected, I chose to use Time Machine to back it up.
Well.. my intention was to put all my pictures, videos, movies, and music on the external hd and then wipe my laptop completely and reinstall my osx (which is currently Leopard). So, I copied all my music and movies/videos to the external to test that it works.. the movies played so I decided to delete all my music from my computer at that point, but now Itunes isn't working
. I already changed the preferences to using the externals itunes folder.
How do I do what my intention was to do? Did I already screw up? lol
Sorry if there is too much useless information, I have a bad habit of doing that. Thanks in advanced to anyone who decides to try and help me.
