    I was curious if it was possible to take music from my original computer drive, transfer it to an external drive, and then have itunes from a computer besides the original read the files. Why i need to do this is a real long story but any help would be appreciated. :d

    thanks

    I am kinda confused.

    I will try to help if I understand this right...

    Your original Hard drive is from an old/ past computer? Is it hooked up to a computer now? You would need a computer to copy a hard drive files over to the External Hard drive.

    Why not just take the Original Hard drive and hook it into your new/other computer?

    You want to transfer music from your computer's internal HD to a external HD and then back to another computer's internal HD?

    Yes/kinda under the store tab you can authorize her computer to play music you bought with your iTunes account. You can only authorize 5 computers with your account at a time. Depending on how you did your iTunes backup You may not have your playlists saved.

    Hope this helped :D
