I have just purchased a new computer, please can someone help me.  How do I move my itunes library onto the new computer? I thought with my apple id and password, I would be able to use as before. Please help?!

I have had to purchase a new computer, as my last laptop died!! I have tried to add music onto my iphone, and my childrens ipod touch's, but its looking like it will clear their memory completely. Please can someone advise me what I need to do. Many thanks.

See iTunes: How to move your music to a new computer

    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

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

    Put the hard drive from your old computer in an external drive bay and extract the library from it, or see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.

    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.

  • HT2291 I installed Itunes on mu laptop.I down;oaded some music. The hard drive on that computer crashed. How do i get my Itunes library from the other computer to put on my new computer?

    How do i get my Itunes library from my crashed hard drive to put on my new computer? The old computer had Windows Vista and the new computer has Windows 8.

    It will only be where you put it.
    It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer for just such an occasion.  Use your backup copy to put everything back.
    If for some reason you have failed to backup ( not good), then you can transfer itunes purchases from an ipod.  File>Transfer Purchases.

  • How do I transfer my Itunes Library onto a new computer?

    I feel pretty silly, but I just got a new laptop and want to transfer the music I have purchased. Do I upload from my Ipod? Or do I burn the library off the old computer and upload on the new one. The old operating system was Windows XP, the new one is Windows Vista.
