    I was able to do it on my pc. Is there anyway I can remove my music from my harddrive (Macbook) and place in my external hard drive. And everytime i open itunes it will grab the music from my external hard drive. Also my external hard drive is hooked up to my airport extreme. HELP ME PLEASE.

    Uncheck the box in the iTunes Preferences titled "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library". It's in the Advanced tab. This will cause iTunes to leave the files where they are.

    OP, next time maybe use a thread title that actually conveys what's in the thread?

    yeah especially when it says right next to the title while posting a new thread to not use titles such as "need help please"
