    Hello all! Desperately need help. I have bought a used MBP 15" and am using my 30,000+ songs for iTunes on a LaCie 500GB external HD. I am a DJ and really need to get this HD talking to my new MBP. I try to do the OPTION and sign on iTunes thing, but when I try to choose a library, it says "An iTunes library file could not be found in the folder 'LaCie 500GB. Please choose a different folder.'" Basically, I just want to use the external HD on the new computer as my iTunes library storage. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Old MBP:
    2008 MBP 15"
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB Ram
    250 HD
    OS Snow Leopard
    iTunes version 11.4

    New MBP:
    Mid 2010 15"
    2.66 GHz Intel Core i7
    8GB RAM
    500GB HD
    OS Yosemite
    iTunes version 12.5.3

    Hey Just_Me_D! Thanks for getting back to me. So I seem to have done all these things, but not all the songs that are in the External are showing up. It seems just the songs I have downloaded from iTunes are showing up in iTunes, and again, they're still stuck in iCloud... Wondering what I'm doing wrong?

    Oh and sorry, also, the songs are already on the External HD (the LaCie). These songs weren't in my MacBook Pro's hard drive.
