    As the tittle has said I have moved GarageBand's Apple Loops to my external hardrive to allow space. However now when I open GarageBand it say's no installed loops and to reinstall the loops. How do I make the app read the directory found in my external. I have looked in preferences with no luck.

    Thanks in advance :)

    "Drag loops, or a folder containing the loops, over the loop browser. The loops are added to the the Apple Loops library and to the index.

    If you add loops located on a different drive or partition, a dialog appears asking whether you want to copy them to the loop library, or index them in their current location. If you add loops from the desktop, a dialog asks if you want to move them or index them in their current location.

    If you add loops located on a CD or DVD, GarageBand copies them to the loop library."

    That is a direct quote from the GarageBand On-line Help file. There may be other things there you'd enjoy reading... :)
