Hi I have just bought a new 500GB to replace the very full 80GB I have on my 13" (1,1) 2.0ghz macbook. I had some questions I hoped you guys might be able to help with: 1. I found an online guide (http://www.macinstruct.com/node/130 see part 4) that suggests removing the EMI and fitting to the new drive. the apple official guide doesnt mention this. Should I be doing this? 2 On the apple discussion forums I have been advised to take a clone of current hard drive using superduper. I dont have an empty external drive at the moment. Could I reload the OS disc and then do a back up from time machine? Would that put all my files and settings etc back as they are now but on the new fitted drive? 3 I have my itunes files on an external drive. What is quickest way of getting them onto the new internal drive and getting itunes to recognise that they are there rather than on the external (without having to redo all my playlists etc) sorry if these seem dumb questions but I am new to all of this!
