How can i move my itunes library onto my new computer if i dont have the old computer?

i have installed i tunes on my new laptop and when i plug in my i phone it syncs fine but when i go into my library there is only music i have purchased from i tunes, the old library itself is not there (no uploaded music via old cd's ect) and i can only up load photos i have taken with my phone, not the photos from my old computer/library. all my music and photos are still on my iphone but i want to upload everything onto my new computer not just my i tunes purchases and photos only taken with my iphone.......help please its driving me mad!!!!!!! surely there is a way to move items from my phone to my computer and not by sending 500 photos via email and waving goodbye to my music i no onger have the cd's for?!?!?!?!?!?! madness!!!!!
thanks :-)

Why didn't you transfer your iTunes library from your old computer to youir new computer along with all other important data, and where is the backup for your old computer that should include your iTunes library along with all other important data?
Photos transferred from your computer are optimized for viewing on your iPhone via the iTunes sync/transfer process - the original resolution of these photos is reduced. This is why Apple doesn't provide a way to transfer these photos in the opposite direction and why photos available on your computer should be included with your computer's backup along with all other important data - iTunes library, documents, etc.
There are 3rd party paid utilities that provide for transferring these photos in the opposite direction but the original resolution of these photos will be forever lost, and the same for transferring music from your iPhone that was not purchased from the iTunes store.

    If you put it in the default location of Macintosh HD > Users > *User Name* > Music  then you don't even need to start with the option key held down, iTunes will automatically look for it there.  (Make sure there isn't anything already in the iTunes folder there that you want to keep since you will be replacing it with the one you are moving.)

  • How can I move my iTunes library to a new location?

    At the moment, my iTunes library is split across two hard drives, (22gb roughly on each). This was mainly so that if one drive failed, I didn't lose all my music. Anyway, I now have two 1tb drives and I want to move the entire library into a centralised location on one drive. I tried following the steps in this link: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1364 but it was utterly useless (I have iTunes 10.4).
    Right now, I have all my albums grouped into a folder called 'Albums' and for singles or albums where I only kept a few tracks I have the tracks organized into seperate folders according to genre. I want to keep this folder structure but have it in a centralised location instead of split across two disks. How can I do this?

  • How can I restore my itunes library onto my new PC. My old PC was hit by a virus and I was unable to export it ??

    Quite a while ago my 'old' PC was hit by a virus and I was unable to extract any data from it. When I got a new PC I could not find a way to recover my library from itunes so reluctantly I signed up for a new account. Is there some way that I can contact itunes to see about having my old library restored on my new PC ??  I even had money in the account that was unused !!

    If for some reason you have failed to maintain a backup copy of your computer ( not good), then you can redownload some itunes purchases in some countries.
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    Why would you start a new account?  Why no use the same account on the new computer?

  • HT4527 How can I move my iTunes library to my new laptop?

    My old computer crashed, and all that's left of it is the hardrive. I didn't get to deactivate the iTunes account on the old pc, and I don't have a backup of the library.  All I have is my nano which has some songs from library, but not all.  Please tell me I have options to recover my library...

    You may well be able to recover your library and media from your old drive if you place it in an external drive bay and connect it to your new computer. Otherwise see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.

  • How can I move my iTunes library from one Mac to another?

    I recently purchased a new 13" MacBook Air to replace my older 17" MacBook Pro. 
    How can I move my iTunes library to my new MBA? 
    I also plan on purchasing a new iPhone in the next month or so.  Can I move my songs from my iPod to that too?

    Easy. Copy it from the old Mac to the new one.
    There are a variety of techniques including Setup Assistant (as soon as you get your new MacBook Air, it will ask you if you want to transfer information from another computer), Migration Assistant (if you elect to transfer information later), enabling file sharing between the two computers, or copying your music to a flash drive or other storage device followed by importing it to iTunes.
    iTunes: How to move your music from one computer to another
    Once your music library and everything else you want to transfer from the MacBook Pro resides on the new MBA, sync your iPod to the MBA. Sync the iPhone too when you get it, and they will both have identical iTunes music libraries.

  • How do I get my iTunes library onto my new computer when my old computer died?

    How can I upload my iTunes library onto my new computer from my iPod or iPad? our old computer died and now I cannot move my iTundes library from my iPod or iPhone onto the new iTunes. Anyone have a workaround for this?

    It depends on what you mean by "died".
    If the old computer is a Mac, you can try starting it up in "Target Disk Mode" - it doesn't attempt to start up like a computer, it pretends to be an external hard drive so it might work even if your old computer still has power (even if it's otherwise unusable). You then use a firewire cable (or or firewire to thunderbolt adapter) to plug the old computer into the new one, and can copy the music off the old hard drive.
    OS X Mountain Lion: Transfer files between two computers using target disk mode
    Or, if you're handy with a screwdriver, open up the old computer and take the old hard drive out. How easy that is depends on what model computer it is. You can then pop the hard drive into an "external enclosure" (about $20 from any computer parts store), plug that into your new computer's USB port and copy away - and you even get to keep using the old hard drive as an external hard drive. But that's assuming it really is the computer that "died" and not the hard drive itself.
    Finally, if it's the hard drive in the old computer that died, but the computer itself is still good, you can try using a utility like DiskWarrior or TechTools Pro to try to recover the old hard drive, then use one of the above methods.
    if you want to copy the music directly from you ipod, you can try these instructions - How to transfer music from an iPod to your computer | How To - CNET

  • HT1449 Can I move my iTunes library onto Time Capsule and share it across my devices (similar to a NAS drive)?

    Hi
    Would anyone know if I can I move my iTunes library onto Time Capsule and share it across my devices (similar to a NAS drive)?
    This would give me some hard drive space on my iMac and more importantly mean my iTunes library is available all the time. Although I have Home sharing I need my iMac on and if not I use iTunes on iCloud I always seem to be downloading the tracks I need.
    Current configuration / devices:
    iMac 20-inch, Mid 2007 - nearly full!
    Processor  2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory  4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    OSX Mavericks
    Time Capsule (1TB)
    iPad
    iPod Touch
    Apple TV
    iTunes 11.1.5 (5)
    Many thanks

    What "devices" are these?  By devices I normally understand i-devices and not computers.  How many computers?
    If you put the whole library on the Time Capsule (TC) you can only use it with one computer at a time because the iTunes library file can only be opened by one copy of iTunes at a time.  If you put only media on the TC but have a copy of the library files on each computer you can use media by multiple computers but you then have the headache of trying to make sure that any changes done to the collection by one computer are mirrored by the libraries on the other computers which will be more or less independent.
    I hope this TC isn't also your backup drive.  When the TC drive fails (and it will someday) then your whole collection is gone.  Don't rely upon Apple to always have copies for you to download.  For one, if a distributor puylls an item then it is gone period.  Additionally, Apple only keeps media, not the actual organization that is your set of library files.  If you do this, buy another backup drive.

  • I have created separate user accounts for my 2 boys on my macbook. How do i get my itunes library onto their new ipods?

    I have created separate user accounts for my 2 boys on my macbook. How do i get my itunes library onto their new ipods?

    They can't.  Which came first - the chicken or the egg?  Actually, that's a bad comparison but a sync must come first.
    The library is actually part of iTunes and it contains everything.  iTunes is then configured so that you (or they) determine which portion of everything will be synced to each iPod (identified by a unique name, see below for an example of an iPod and an iPad).  iTunes can't make that decision until AFTER it knows which iPods exist.
    By the way, I (you, they) can very easily change the name of each device to whatever I (you, they) wish to call it.
