    How's the best way to do this?

    I want to move all my music to an external drive and then do a clean install os the OS to sell the machine.

    Then of course pass the mp3s from my external drive to my macbook

    how to?

    thanks. :)

    the easiest way would be to copy over the music folder to the external drive and than re-import back into the new iTunes on the new machine. There are other options you can do to keep your play counts and such but usually a fresh reload is good for your music listening soul. =)
