    Built a new PC. Windows 7.

    So I installed my old PC hard drive into my new rig. iTunes is on the old HD and I figured I could just make a shortcut to the old hd but no, it won't work. (registry, I guess)

    So if I install iTunes on my new hd, will I be able to just drag and drop all my stuff from the old hd or import them?

    Im pretty sure that you can just drag/drop your itunes/music folder from the old hd into the install on the new hd and then delete (or keep it as back up) on the old hd. I havent done mass transfers in a long time though so things might have changed in the last few years.

    In your "iTunes Media" folder, there's another folder called "Automatically Add to iTunes" - drag whatever you want into that folder. Next time you start up iTunes it will sort it out automagically.

    THANKS FOR YOUR SOLUTION! I sound like a pussy, but you saved my butt. My library had been on another HDm but I had soo many lost files it was driving me to the point of throwing the stupide computer out. Now all I have to do is get rid of all my duplicate files that were created as a result of running stupid iTunes "Organization" or '"consolidation". Many thanks again!
