Have you copied your content over from your old computer and onto the new on ? If not, and you still have your old computer, then there a number of methods described on this page which you can use to copy your library over : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527 . If you no longer have your old computer then have you got a backup of your content that you can copy onto the new computer and add into iTunes ?

    Hi RaychelM,
    If you are repeatedly prompted to authorize your computer, even after you have already done so, you may find the following article helpful:

  • How can I migrate Adobe digital edition and its library from an old computer to a new one?

    How can I migrate Adobe digital edition and its library from an old computer to a new one?

    Pertains to a Windows machine..
    Definitely get other opinions on this. I last did this myself in 2010.
    The most important thing, is to make sure you have an account (which I think you must have, or you probably couldn't have posted here).
    As I recall, I downloaded ADE to my new computer, launched the software, authorized the new computer by supplying my login, and then just moved the 'My Digital Editions' folder to the new machine.
    Be sure to de-authorize your old machine after you have done all of this, or over time you could end up exceeding your 'simultaneous devices'-limit for accessing your materials. I suspect that *from within the app itself, while it is still installed on your old machine* may be your only opportunity to do this. It is certainly the best/easiest.
    Hey Internet! Have you done this more recently than I? If so, please chime in to make corrections or add detail.

  • What is the best way to move my itunes music library from my old computer to my new one?

    what is the best way to move my itunes music library from my old computer to my new one?

    Home Sharing is option A.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3819
    Option B is consolidating the library to an external HD.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1364
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1751
    Or you can use one of the other 8000 methods. I just prefer these two.

  • HT1451 I need to move my library from my old computer to my new laptop. What's the best way to do this?

    I need to move my library from my old computer to my new laptop (Windows 8). What's the best way to do this?

    These are two possible approaches that will normally work to move an existing library to a new computer.
    Method 1
    Backup the library with this User Tip.
    Deauthorize the old computer if you no longer want to access protected content on it.
    Restore the backup to your new computer using the same tool used to back it up.
    Keep your backup up-to-date in future.
    Method 2
    Connect the two computers to the same network. Share your <User's Music> folder from the old computer and copy the entire iTunes library folder into the <User's Music> folder on the new one. Again, deauthorize the old computer if no longer required.
    Both methods should give the new computer a working clone of the library that was on the old one. As far as iTunes is concerned this is still the "home" library for your devices so you shouldn't have any issues with iTunes wanting to erase and reload.
    I'd recommend method 1 since it establishes an ongoing backup for your library.
    If you have an iOS device that syncs with contact & calendar data on your computer you should migrate this information too. If that isn't possible create a dummy entry of each type in your new profile and iTunes should offer to merge the existing data from the device into the computer, otherwise the danger is that it will wipe the information from the device.
    If your media folder has been split out from the main iTunes folder you may need to do some preparatory work to make it easier to move. See make a split library portable.
    Should you be in the unfortunate position where you are no longer able to access your original library, or a backup of it, then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device for advice on how to set up your devices with a new library with the maximum preservation of data. If you don't have any Apple devices then see HT2519 - Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store.

    Hi, please help me When I render my project in IDVD, video and audio runs properly, but when I burn it in professional quality and burning is finished there was no audio on the last two chapters, one audio is attached to the clip and the other one is from itunes, pls help

    Hi
    My first two thoughts
    • Shared to Media Browser - BUT as Large or HD - try Medium !
    • audio from iTunes - use to go silent
    - in iTunes
    - Create a new PlayList with needed audio
    - BURN this as a standard Audio-CD (.aiff) - NOT .mp3
    - use the files on this CD in Your Movie project - I ALWAYS DO - and only use .aiff ever - never .mp3'
    My notes on this:
    No audio on DVD disc.
    Most common origin. 
    1. Imported audio from iTunes.
    • In iTunes copy out as an Audio-CD .aiff (Same as played on standard Stereo CD - no .mp3)
    • Use this in Your movie project
    2. Low - Free Space on Start-up/Boot/Internal/Mac OS Hard disk makes it hard for iMovie to work as intended.
    Down to 1.3 GB and it doesn’t work - especially audio don’t migrate over to Media Browser
    (iM’08 & 09)
    3. Material in iMovie’08 & 09 - Shared to Media Browser and here selected as Large
    large.m4v. It silenced out this project in iDVD. By making a slight alteration - provoking it to ask for a new Share/Publish to Media Browser and here selecting 640x480 - and audio was back when a new iDVD project was created including this movie.
    Minuscular - - 176x144
    Mobile - - - - - 480x360
    Medium - - - - 640x480
    Large - - - - - - 720x540    960x540
    HD - - - - - - - - 1280x720
    4. Strange audio formats like .mp3, .avi etc.
    • Change them to .aiff. Use an audio editor like Audacity (free)
    5. Main audio is set to off in System Preferences - Does this by it self - Don’t know why
    Cheque Audio-Out resp. Audio-In
    6. Ed Hanna
    Had the same problem; some Googling around gave me a kludgy, but effective fix
    Downgrade Perian from recent versions back to version 1.0.
    That worked for me, and so far I haven't encountered any deficiencies — except it takes more advanced versions of Perian to enable QuickTime to handle subtitles in .srt format — that I have noticed.
    7. GarageBand fix.
    In this set audio to 44.1 kHz (Klaus1 suggestion)
    (if this don’t work try 48 kHz - me guessing)
    Before burning the DVD.
    • Do a DiskImage (File menu and down)
    • Double click on the .img file
    • Test it with Apple DVD-player
    If it’s OK then make Your DVD.
    Burn at x1 speed.... (or x4)
    • In iDVD 08 - or - 09
    • Burn from DiskImage with Apple’s Disk Utilities application
    • OR burn with Roxio Toast™ if You got it

  • Just finished using iTunes, closed out and then tried to get back in.  Got this message "he iTunes library .itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file."  How can I get back into iTunes ?

    I just finished using iTunes, closed out and then tried to get ack in.  Got this message "The iTunes library .9tl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file."   How can I get back ino iTunes ?

    I actually figured it out...I had to go to the iTunes Library Extras.itdb file and give myself permission to have full control.  THEN, I could go and estore a previos version.  Once I had done this, I got the same message for iTunes Library Genius.itdb . . . I did the same thing with it and Voila'!!
    Hope this helps...
