well, i have a bit too much music, so i bought a external HDD to put all my music on there, so i moved one album, but it wasn't on itunes so i had to import it again and i dont really wanna do that for 35GB of music

Is there any way that it transfers the music without me having to import it all again?

Thanks (Y)

I have written a guide that is in the FAQ section (proposed section)

http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=103721

I am waiting to see if it is good enough to make it in to the FAQs, since this question gets asked several times a week

hope it helps

I read your tutorial, and have one comment -- I believe you hold down the Option key, not the Alt key to be prompted to choose the library.
