    getting music from old HD ->iTunes
    just made the switch a few days ago and I'm trying to get all my music from my external HD into my itunes library.

    I tried to import the folder from iTunes, but it will only let me do it song by song

    Then I opened the folder in the HD and dragged it into itunes, but that copied all my music to my mac HD, which is what I don't want, since I have about 90GB of music that I don't want on my mac HD and want on my external HD.

    How can I keep the music files on my external HD but still add them to my itunes library

    Open iTunes
    Goto Preferences > Advanced
    Change the iTunes Music folder location to the folder in your external HD
