Did you setup the new Mac with the same user account and password as your old Mac?
How are you trying to copy your iTunes music from your external drive?

Yes used the same user name and password and simply copying the music folder from the external hard drive and pasting it on my new mac.

I have always copied the entire iTunes folder from the user Library (~/Library) from a Time Machine backup and that same folder from a clone that was created with either SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner.
Have you tried renaming your current iTunes folder on the new Mac to old_iTunes then copy the whole iTunes folder from your external drive?
