Hey, I just had a new hard drive installed in Macbook with OSX 10.6.6. I want to drag Iphoto and its library from the old hard drive to the new one. I brought the application over but where do I drag the library in order for it to work. Also, before I brought over the application, I opened the library (in old drive) and it said it had 7.2 gig but when I opened it, it showed no pictures. This is the first time I ever had to drag stuff over so not too sure how things work. Thanks

I don't know why you dragged iPhoto to the new HD as it should have already been there with the installation of OS X.
Anyway, you just drag the iPhoto library from your pictures folder of the old HD to the pictures folder of the new HD.
QUOTE Thanks
