I have all my music on an external drive.  Sometimes I would like to access iTunes, for purchases and other, without having that drive plugged in.  I used to be able to do this, but something has changed and I can no longer figure out how.  There must be a way.

    Well, you can always ignore the fact it will automatically direct anything to a new blank library it will create on the internal drive.  Just let it do it (as long as you keep track of any purchases that download, or maybe you can turn off automatic downloading )  The next time you need to use it with the external drive hold down the option/alt key while starting iTunes and select the library file on the external drive.
