    External HDD questions
    A few months ago I bought a 2TB external HDD for my 2007 aluminum iMac. My intentions for this HDD seemed simple - I wanted to keep my music on the external HDD and have my iTunes pull it from the external HDD as it was being played. I installed the HDD, and I moved my music over. I some how went about doing it the wrong way because iTunes could no longer find any of the music - even when I was trying to open the mp3s from the right HDD.

    I ended up moving all of the music back and returning the HDD.. this resulted in some how creating doubles of certain (not all) mp3s.

    Today I noticed I have about 20GB left until my internal HDD is full. I need to get an HDD but I am confused about how to move the music over and afraid of wasting $100.. Any help?

    Read through this article which shows how to move your iTunes library. Additionally, Apple has basically the same instructions for doing so in their knowledge base articles.

    Hi Noonan

    You could also read this Apple Support article on exactly the same thing - how to move your iTunes folder.
