Hi there

I have a Mac Pro and i've just installed a new SSD. I have the SSD as my main bootup disk and another internal drive as a secondary HDD that has lion installed should one of my disks ever fail on me. I transfered my user information to the SSD with the exception of Music, so when i go to itunes it has none of my music. I was able to locate my library on my second bootup disk. Is there a way of playing that library without the need of transferring all of the music to my SSD. my library is 100gb and i do not have that much space available on my SSD.

Thank you !!

Hold down the option key when you open iTunes. Select the external library. There is no step three.
