iTunes to external hardrive help!

by Holmes42 / March 14, 2007 3:12 AM PDT

My wife an I both use the same ibook G4. Since adding iTunes and me as a user it has gotten very slow. Is it because we are using so much memory for our music? We thought so and purchased a Western digital ext. hardrive in hopes of sppeding things up.
How can we operate itunes soley from the Ext. HD. I have selected the HD from the preferences menu in iTunes but the only music on the ext. HD is what we have put on since the ext. HD was installed and I can't figure out how to get the library over to the ext. HD safely so we can then take it of the ibook HD. Is this a good idea? will it help the speed? Or is it possible we have some viruses too? Thank you, I am not too saavy yet and appreciate any help!
