Following the steps to move my iTunes library to an external drive, everything is strating well, the copy beginns and after 2 hours of copy, I had this message failure with error -50.

My external hard drive is a timecapsule with enough free space.

Please could you tell me what's hapenning ?

Thank you!

    I suggest you keep the entire iTunes folder to gether rather than moving only the media.


    1. Quit iTunes.
    2. Copy the entire /Music/iTunes/ foldder to teh external drive.
    3. Launch iTunes and hold Option.
    4. Select Choose library... and select the iTunes folder on the external.


    This is all you need to do.
