I just connected an external hard drive to my PC (drive e://) and using
windows explorer I dragged all of my iPod/iTunes folders from the My Music
folder of My Documents on the C drive to a My Music Folder on the E drive.

However, when I open iTunes, it can't locate my library of music.

How do I fix this?

because you have to tell I tunes of the new location of these files. It still
thinks they are in the old harddrive. Windows knows where they are at but
Itunes does not. I tunes now see's and empty folder.

How do I "tell" iTunes of the new location?

you basically tell it to search for music files and window box will open then
you click the paths to get there for example mycomputer/E:/ itunes songs(this
would be the file you moved the songs to
