    I have a Mac mini and a Mac Book Pro. What I would like to do is use the Mac mini as a music jukebox. It will be connected to my stereo to play music. I want to know if it is possible to connect a 1TB external drive to the Mac mini and when I open iTunes have the music from that 1TB drive available. Basically I want to increase my music selection to 1TB of songs to choose from. Is there any software that will let me do this or is this impossible???

    Yes.

    It's called iTunes.

    You can do it a couple of ways. You can move your iTunes library onto the external drive and start iTunes pressing the Option key, then select the library.

    Or you can set the library location in iTunes preferences to the external drive and consolidate your existing library.

    I'll just let you know that this question is asked and answered very often, not only here but on other web sites, and a google search returns a large number of results on this very topic.
