    Hi,
    I would like to back up my entire iTunes Music library, including the album art on an external hard drive. This would be done from my computer, not my iTouch. I would leave the actual program on my computers C drive. I know iTunes makes this simple by backing up to disc, but I would much rather place it all an external hard drive. If you have done this, please let me know how to go about it. Thanks in advance, Ray

    First go to music/iTunes/iTunes music and copy all the songs from there onto the ext harddrive and then copy all other music to it. The. Copy the library file from music/iTunes
