iTunes backup - stupid question

Before installing anything on my new Mac book pro I backed up my iTunes and photos to an external hard drive. I plugged the external drive into my new Mac and none of my back up are showing (I have been backing up from my old computer for years and the old ones are not showing either). the only backups showing are the ones from the new Mac. I am assuming the old backups are on the external drive drive somewhere - how do I find them?

Did you answer YES to the question about using the plugged-in external drive as a Time Machine? If so, there is a warning that doing this erases what is currently on the drive. Could this be your problem?
