I had to reload my brother's new Mac Mini and decided to put his iTunes Libary on a Lacie 500 GB external. I installed Tiger and all of the updates. I went into iTunes preferences and changed the file location of the iTunes folder to the external drive and created a new file. Then, I moved the music to the new iTunes Music Folder from the backup.
Everything seems to work fine, but the music information and album art is not going to the new iTunes Music Folder. All of that is going into the old iTunes Music Folder on the internal hard drive. Is there a way to move that information to the external hard drive so I can delete the original iTunes Music Folder?
Will there be duplicate MP3 files in the new iTunes Music folder since the libarry is already there. All I want to do is to get the album art and other information. For some reason, that is still on the main hard drive, not the external drive.
