    I have a MacBook Pro 17in early 2011 OS X 10.8.2. ML
    I was surfing the web and came across how to transfer your iTune library to my external drive. To free up space on my internal drive. Every thing went fine. I have a 3T go flex seagate thunderbolt.

    Now my external is having problems and I have know idea how to transfer back.When I take off the seagate iTunes states I cannot find iTunes would you like to start another? I remember there were a few steps that had to be done and not just dropping the folder. I wish I did the more research before jumping in.

    Thanks Mark

    You have to change the library location in iTunes (Preferences -> Advanced -> iTunes Media folder location).
