    Texas, where else?
    Your Mac's Specs
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Quit iTunes.

    I would use SuperDuper! or CCC - whichever one you have - to clone from one external to the other vs just copying.

    After the cloning is done and you verify the data is transferred, the old drive is disconnected from your computer, then rename the new external to match that of the old one. Then when you open iTunes, it shouldn't have any issue with the location of your library.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
