    External Hard Drive hiding files
    I'm trying to transfer my itunes library from my old PC to my new Mac by using an external hard drive. I put all the files on the external drive successfully, but when opened up in finder the files aren't there. The iTunes Music folder on the HD is displayed as being completely empty in Finder, even though the files are there when being viewed on the PC. Any ideas why this might be, or how to "unhide" the files when viewing on the Mac?

    Attach the hard drive to the PC again and check to see what file attributes are being shown for the iTunes library folder and files. An "A" or "R" attribute is OK but if it's "H" or "S" the Mac won't be able to "see" it.
