    I copied the music that was on my macbook pro onto an external hard drive. I want the mac mini to be able to use the hard drive as its itunes library without storing the music on the mac mini hard drive. But I want the playlists from the macbook pro to be the same for the mini, except the music being on a separate drive.

    I've been trying myself, and doing searches but I haven't gotten anywhere!

    Can you please help me with that?
    Thanks so much in advance!!

    The playlist and playcount info is stored in the following two files:

    /Users/~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.xml
    /Users/~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library

    Make sure to copy them over to the Mac Minis /Users/~/Music/iTunes folder and set the music location to the external hard drive:
