    Hi. I have just got a new laptop and although it has a lot of space on it I have a lot of music. I have an external hard drive, can I store my music on there and get windows media player and itunes to still be able to play it? Also for future downloads can I get them to be stored there? If so, how? Thanks

    Yes, just point itunes music library to the external drive under edit - preferences -
    NOTE that some external harddrives can get very hot if left on for a while and eventually fail quite quickly
