Question about Computers & Internet
If I have all my iTunes music downloaded to my laptop it takes up a large amount of disk space and slows my computer if possible I would like to play this music from an external drive and have not been able to figure out how to do this. I hope there is a simple fix.
Attach your external drive.
Create the directory on that drive that you want Itunes to store your music.
Open up Itunes.... go to the edit menu and select preferences.
Go to the advanced tab. there is an option there for change my preferred directory. Change this to the directory you created at the beginning of this instruction.
Now copy all of you songs from your music folder on the laptop to the one on the external drive.
Confirm that ALL of your songs transferred OK then delete them from the laptop.
You should NOW be all set to enjoy music from your external drive. (Be sure to always have your external drive attached when you open Itunes.... If yoou don't Itunes will look for the external, not find it and revert BACK to the default directory)
Hope this helps you
