So, I finally was able to install OS X on one of my hardrives, but most of my music is on another hardrive, and the amount of memory left on the hardrive I have installed OS X on wouldn't support the amount of songs I have. Is there any way to simply import the songs onto my ITunes without copying the files to the OS X hardrive? Others have said something about switching where the location of where files go, but I've tried that with no success.
Explain it to me simply as I am not very good with computers.
QUOTE Thanks

Certainly, just start iTunes, go to the FILE menu and number 4 on the drop down is ADD TO LIBRARY. Click on that and point iTunes to where the music is and it will take care of the rest.

The thing is, on the hard drive installed with OSX doesn't read the other hard drive it isn't installed on, so I can only import what's on the OSX hard drive. It's as if they're not connected or something.

Actually, I think it is better than Bless The Martry. It has more of the math metal aspect that I love.
Haha.
Anyway, can someone help me? Or am I screwed?

Afraid i don't know enough yet about OS X to answer that one. What it looks like to me is you need to back up that OS9 drive then format it to where OS X can read it, reinstall the files and then it should work fine.
