One way to migrate an iTunes collection to another drive
Authored by: Melle on Jun 18, '08 08:56:16AM

This does work, actually. You can search and replace in the xml file. There is one additional thing you'll have to do, which is to delete the contents of the matching .itl-file (not delete the file, just make it an empty file). This way, iTunes will 'regenerate' the Library based on the xml file.
If you don't 'zero' the itl-file, iTunes will ignore the updated xml-file and regenerate that in stead.
Hope that made any sense...

Thank you, that's probably the way I'll fix it when I move the drive :) Much easier since I'm planning to attach it to our NAS and while the wireless is reasonably fast, it's not direct attached speeds!

I'm not worried about play counts and such, so deleting the .itl file will work fine for me.
