    I was going to reformat my computer so I copied my whole My Music folder to an external hard disk. this includes the library files and artwork folder and all that. I would prefer to keep that all on the external drive so how can I have itunes read the library file and everything from the external drive? I tried going to edit -> preferences -> advanced and pointing the itunes music folder to the one on the external drive but that doesnt show anything in my library. Itunes also insists on making a library file in my current music folder which I do not want. I want it read from my external drive. any help would be great. Thanks
