I just make the move to Mac computers.  My iTunes library is currently on a PC formatted external drive.  I would like to move it to an external drive that i have formatted for Mac.  What is the best way to do this?

MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Organize it from within iTunes, quit iTunes, and drag it there.

    Is the entire library on the external drive or just the media folder? If it is the latter, and you still have access to the PC then see make a split library portable.


    If the drive is in FAT32 format you can connect a portable library directly to the Mac, holding down Option as you start iTunes. Otherwise you either need to copy it to a local drive (Mac should be able to read NTFS) or install a full service NTFS driver so that the library can be read and updated.
