  1. I have iTunes library on 1TB external hard drive. The library is 14,000+ songs that are a combination of purchased and ripped from my CD collection. I thought having the library on an external hard drive meant moving to a new computer would be a breeze. I didn't even worry about it. My computer is an iMac over 5 years old. It has been updated to MacOS and has the latest version of iTunes I got a new iMac with MacOS and iTunes I attached the external hard drive to the new computer. I opened iTunes. Under Preferences -> Advanced I selected the location of my iTunes library. There are two problems: 1. Every song has a download icon. 2. A lot of ripped music isn't visible in the library even though I've confirmed it's still on the hard drive. As a science experiment, I clicked the download icon on a ripped track. (This is a song I did NOT purchase through iTunes.) This seemed to fix the problem but created a new copy of the m4a file named -1, thus consuming double the disk space. Any suggestions? Thanks!
