    I have just bought the Mac Mini and am trying to get Itunes to see the music stored on the external hard drive. I have managed to get front row to see the films folder but would ideally like to get music from hard drive playing via front row , plex or any other sourse that looks good.
    Tried changing location in the preference tab on itunes but this didn't seem to work.....

    Any advice re setting this up most welcome;

    you have to add the files to the itunes library

    either cmd-O then find the files, or drag the folder to the library window.

    .....bit of a blonde moment, but will doing this make the music on the hard drive available. As I assumed I would be moving files to Itunes on the Mac Mini.
    Just getting to grip with this and need easy to follow plans :eek::eek:

    otherwise iTunes doesn't automatically add stuff to your library. you have to tell it the music it there. Depending on your settings, it will then copy the files to your library and organize them
