  • 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.

    I now have a HP with Windows 8 and need to move my itunes library from my Lenovo..

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    Connect an external disk, go to My Music folder and copy iTunes folder to your external disk. Then, connect the external drive to your new computer, copy iTunes to My Music and open iTunes. If your library doesn't appear after opening the application, open iTunes holding Shift key and go to the folder with your library

  • How can I get my old iTunes music onto my new computer without access to my old computer? I left my previous job and forgot to transfer my music. I bought iTunes match and it shows my old Mac as a device, but I cannot get the music off it.

    How can I get my old iTunes music onto my new computer without access to my old computer? I left my previous job and forgot to transfer my music. I bought iTunes match and it shows my old Mac as a device, but I cannot access any of the old music. All I can find are what was on my iPhone, but that's not what I want. I need all my old music from my old Mac, which has been wiped clean by IT at my old job. BUT, I did have iCloud at that time and I thought all my music would be accessible through it. I don't understand the Cloud! And I'm thinking spending $24.99 on iTunes Match was a waste of money because I still can't access my old music.

    When you are done with this issue, consider the computer back at the office may still
    have access to your iTunes account, and it should be de-auhorized. You can do that
    remotely, but be sure you carefully do not mess up your other computer iTunes libraries.
    Good luck & happy computing!

  • How do I move my itunes library to a new pc using a flash stick?

    I want to move my itunes library to my new pc. I have purchased some songs on my new computer and downloaded them to a cd and put them on my ipod nano using my old pc. I now want to transfer my entire library on my old computer to my new one using an external drive or flash stick. The old computer will no longer be used. The new computer will now be my 'home' computer. I have some lengthy instructions on how to transfer the library using my ipod, but i don't know how to use a flash drive to do it...instructions, please. (my old computer is windows 2000 xp...new one is windows vista)

    Choose Consolidate Library from the Advanced menu in iTunes, confirm this action, open the Advanced section of the iTunes preferences, check the path for the iTunes library, and move the folder at that path to the corresponding location on the new computer, using any method necessary to transfer the data.

  • 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?

    iTunes: How to move [or copy] your music [library] to a new computer [or another drive] - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527 - a somewhat bewildering and not always easily understandable set of options.
    Quick answer if you use iTunes' default preferences settings:  Copy the entire iTunes folder (and in doing so all its subfolders and files) intact to the other drive.  Open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option (alt) key (shift on Windows), then guide it to the iTunes Library.itl file in the moved iTunes folder.
    For the record there's this reference for iTunes 11 but it really doesn't strike me as having the specifics you need. iTunes 11 for Mac: Move your library to another computer - http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12168 
    Windows users see tip at: https://discussions.apple.com/message/18879381
    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.)

    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.

  • How do I move my Itunes library to a new hard drive????

    Hi!
    I recently installed a new and bigger hard drive and wanted to move my itune library to it. Someone here said that if I do that, I will have to manually reintall each song into Itunes. Is this true? is there a way that i would move it and cause minimal effect?
    Thanks!

    You might find these articles useful, you can adapt the first one to an internal drive, the method would be the same only the way the drives are connected is different:

  • How do I move the iTunes library to a new hard drive?

    The 600 Gb startup drive in my 2006 MacPro had gotten corrupted (however iTunes worked just fine and is used to backup my ipad and iphone), so I put in a new 1T internal drive and installed Lion on it and other applicatiions, including iphoto without problem.  Now I want to transfer all my itunes stuff, including playlists, etc to to the new 1T internal from my 600GB internal .  I tried following the support article "itunes for mac: moving your itunes Media folder" but it did not work.  I think the article assumes you are not changing your start-up disk and just need to point somewhere else to find the media folder.  Is there a directory I need to also move to my new operating start up drive? Anyone know what I need to do?  Thanks!

    This might be a better article for you
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1751
    essentially you move everything under the Music Folder
    Username/Music/
    To the same place on your new drive
    Then hold down the option key while starting iTunes and select the location of your new library

  • How do you get previous Itunes pruchases onto a new Ipod without syncing it to the laptop?

    I've been in Australia for over a year, my previous Ipod broke so a purchased a new Ipod touch this year. However, as my Itunes library is on my laptop back in the UK, I'm a little depleted of music on this Ipod. Is it possible to get previous Itune purchases onto my Ipod here in Australia without me flying home, or worse still having the laptop sent over? I've kept all my Itunes receipts.

    Try here:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    you might not be able to get some items back since yuo are in a differenrt country now.

  • 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.
