    I have just put a 1TB hard drive in my MBP, which means I can now put my entire iTunes library on there, instead of using an external hard drive.
    Is there a way to transfer the music from the ExternalHD to the MBP?
    When I search this idea, the results are all about moving the library from one computer to another, which isn't quite what I need to do.

    Hello,

    have a look here : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1449?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

    This is the right way to use if your iTunes Library is currently on your computer, but the iTunes Media Folder on the external HD.

    If your whole iTunes folder (including iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Media folder) is on the external HD, then you just need to copy this iTunes folder to your internal HD (to Music folder for instance).
