    so i followed all of the steps in this support article from apple.

    now heres the twist that i need help with.

    i recently bought a new imac and i had a 1TB external hard drive from before. all of my music and movies are already on the drive but i didnt have it with me when i first was using my imac so i setup a itunes library on my imac. so when i hit consolidate in itunes none of the music and movies that i had from before are showing up in my itunes.

    There is no twist. Very simple.

    While opening iTunes, hold down the Option key, and choose external drive library.
    You might need the library files from your other computer.
    If you had used Apple migration assistant, then it's transferred automatically.
