Hi i recently switched from PC to Mac, I have a terabyte external harddrive full of media that I loaded onto the mac... iTunes organizer put all this music onto my macbook internal harddrive, and I want it so that i can only get to the media when my external harddrive is plugged in (I don't want my media files on the internal harddrive). I went through preferences and changed the location of the "Media" folder to my external, but this is only for newly added files i'm guessing? At the moment I'm copying and pasting the entire "iTunes" folder to my external, but this may confuse iTunes... should I uninstall iTunes then re-install it to the external? what can i do? any feedback is appreciated. help please
QUOTE Thanks

Okay I tried this, but I have no library file on the external.. so i hooked it back up to my other computer with the full library and went to "export library" and saved it onto the external, but when i hold down option and do wat you just said it doesn't display the library file i just exported?
QUOTE Thanks
