then it would be preferable to designate it as the default library.
However, if the library on the internal is good, and the actual tracks are on the external, that should work too.
If you have the the external as the default, and the library "consolidated", iTunes will not work if the external is disconnected.
I have an external hard drive that I store most of my songs on. Sometimes I unplug the external drive. Why is it that iTunes shows a lot of !'s next to my songs, even if I have my external drive plugged in?
Is it better to designate my iTunes Library as being on my external rather than in the default Music folder?
I use a Macbook Pro and Mac OS Lion.
Thanks for any help.
