iTunes: How to move [or copy] your music [library] to a new computer [or another drive] - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527 - a somewhat bewildering and not always easily understandable set of options.
Quick answer if you use iTunes' default preferences settings: Copy the entire iTunes folder (and in doing so all its subfolders and files) intact to the other drive. Open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option (alt) key (shift on Windows), then guide it to the new location of the library.itl file in the moved iTunes folder.

Thanks for the reply. I need to take a closer look at this as for some reason when I add new content to what I think is going to be added to where the new library lives, it is adding it to the old location. I also have a mix of the older iTunes structure and the new iTunes structure with the media folder. Any thoughts on consolidating those two?
