    How can I access my iTunes Library from a backup image on my external hard drive? iMac>Time Machine

    Currently on a MBA, I don't want to import everything, just want to access it to load music on my new iPhone.

    Thanks for the help, sorry if this an old thread question.

    That's not how Time Machine works. You won't be able to just use that library to sync with the iPhone. It's locked while it's on the Time Machine drive to protect the integrity of the backups, so it won't function for that purpose.
