    Moving music library to another Hard Drive
    I have a Mac Pro with 2 drives - a 250 GB (the primary) and a 750 GB (the secondary).

    I moved my music library - all 47 GB of it - to the 750 GB drive. I went into iTunes preferences and changed the file location. And I checked the locatrion on teh drive and all the music is there.
    Now when I go into itunes to play a CD I have to manually locate each song in order to play them.

    Is there a batch processing command I can do that would locate all of the songs?

    I'm planning on doing the same thing, moving from my external to my internal drive - nearly 80g.

    I noticed that the suggested article says to get itunes to do it by using 'consolidate library' - however it also says you need to have the 'Keep iTunes Library Organised' ticked which I don't want (it messes up mutli artist compilations).

    Does anyone know if it will work if I don't check this?

    Edit: Just did it last night - yes it works, however it 'organises; the folder by artist/album anyway even if you un-check it.
