    I just purchased an external HD, and attempted to move my iTunes library to it (that is a different story though). All of my music shows the original file can not be found....not sure what I did wrong....

    Anyhow, my question, how I can direct meta x to put the new tagged movies in my iTunes folder that resides on the external drive, vs. putting it on my iMac drive (where it went before I got the external HD)...

    Thanks so much.

    Well, it's actually the same issue...

    To move your iTunes library to your external drive you'll need to go into iTunes' preferences under the advanced tab. Where it says 'iTunes Music Folder Location' click the change button and change it to your external drive.

    Then, make sure the iTunes plugin is enabled in MetaX, and you put a checkmark in the 'Send to iTunes after writing' block. When MetaX gets done writing tags it will send it to your iTunes library in the location you identified in the iTunes preferences.

    Hope that helps!
