Can iTUnes search external drive for music files

  Nonagon 19:27 11 Jan 12

I have saved all the files from my old pc, now defunct, onto an external drive.iT

This includes all my music from a collection of cds I’ve ripped.

I linked this to my new laptop but iTunes does not seem to “find” the music on the hard drive.

Is there a way of getting iTunes to search the storage drive for all music or software one can download to do this?

Why not simply copy the music across to the new laptop? Or use the add folder function in ITunes and find the folders on the external drive?

I have all my music files on an external HDD, all I do is open the folder and drag them to my itunes library, I leave the folder open whislt itunes updates, it works fine for me, but I only load what I want at any particular time.
