  • When I use Home sharing, I can see the library I want to copy, but when I highlight the library, the import button does not show up. Also, it will not let me drop and drag. How do I get music from one computer to the other computer?

    When I use Home Sharing, I can see the library I want to copy under Shared, but I can't get it save on the computer under the regular library. I go to edit and "select all" but there is no import button that is in the right hand corner. Also, it will not let me click and drag the music. How do I get it from one computer to the other?

    Since both computers are connected via the network, you could simply copy the ENTIRE iTunes folder from one computer to another via the network.
    If both computers are running Windows, use the Easy File Transfer Utility built into Windows to move iTunes and all other user media/data.

    How do i move icons from one page to another?

    Tap and hold any icon for a couple of seconds. They'll all start to wobble. Tap and drag the one you want to move to the side of the screen and the next screen will appear; drop the icon on whatever screen you want it on.
    You can also do it quicker in iTunes - connect the phone and click the Apps tab in the main window. You'll see a picture of your phone with the apps laid out. Just click and drag

    Or, if you have a network established that both computers are on, you can transfer your "iTunes" folder from one computer to the other. That's what I just did, (from my PC to my new Mac), and it worked just fine. (I only lost the files that I haven't deauthorized on the PC yet.)

    . On my iPhone 5c I cannot rearrange the icons from one part of the home page to another. Suggestions?

    Define "cannot rearrage."  Exactly what did you do and exactly what happened? 
    Did you press on the icons until they wiggle, slide them to the page you want and then press the home button?

  • IPOD 4GB can i copy music from one IPOD to the other

    I have tried doing this but it comes up with your not authorised .

    You can't copy directly from one iPod to another, the songs have to be transferred to iTunes first and your second iPod is updated from there. The transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers was introduced with iTunes 7. A paragraph on it has been added to this article: Transfer iTunes Store purchases using iPod
    The transfer of content from other sources such as songs imported from CD is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well. Have a look at the web pages and documentation, this is just a small selection of what's available, they are generally quite straightforward. You can also read reviews of some of them here: Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes

    iDump Windows Only
    iRepo Windows Only
    iPodRip Mac & Windows
    YamiPod Mac and Windows Versions
    Music Rescue Mac & Windows
    iPodCopy Mac and Windows Versions
    There is also a manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive and copying songs back to iTunes on Windows or a Mac. The procedure is a bit involved and won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's available at this link: Two-way Street: Moving Music Off the iPod
