    Hey folks, I have been using a LaCie USB Harddrive to store 100% of my MP3s for the last few years but im thinking on upgrading to a larger one.

    My question is, if I transfer all the files to another removable drive, how will iTunes be able to find them if the medium doesnt have the same name as the last one, i.e. 'LaCie', with file path /Volumes/LaCie/iTunes

    I only really have experience with Windows on this, where all I had to do was make sure the drive letter was the same E but just need confirmation on how it works on a Mac.

    After you have transferred your iTunes library to the new drive, hold option and click iTunes. iTunes will ask you for the location of the new library you want to load.
