  • Transfering itunes library from one computer to another

    Can you transfer / copy itunes and all songs in library from one PC to another PC (only one IPOD in use

    I am having problems trasferring my itunes library from my PC to my laptop. I transferred all the downloaded music, "MY MUSIC" from one computer to the other, and the laptop's itunes picked those songs up. When I connected my ipod to my lap top, when selecting "transfer purchased music", itunes only imports the music that I have purchased at the itunes store. ** What I can't get imported to my laptop are the 500 CDs (5000 songs) that I downloaded onto my PC's itunes.

  • Transferring iTunes library from one computer to another...

    Okay, so I finally purchased myself a PowerBook. Currently, I have all my music (on my iTunes) on my eMac (which I have been using the past 10 months). I would like to switch all my music over to my new PowerBook and do all my iTunes/iPod updating/synching via my new PowerBook from now on.
    Here's the question: How do I transfer my iTunes library (all my music) from the eMac to the PowerBook? Using my iPod as a hard disk is not an option. Can I connect my new PowerBook to my eMac and transfer the files that way? Do I have to burn like five DVD disks and load them manually onto the new PowerBook? Is there some other great solution? Anything else I need to know about this process? Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Thanks all.

    Use target disk mode wich is explained in the following link. Follow directions carefully and good luck.

  • Transferring external iTune library from one computer to another

    I am having great difficulty in changing my external iTunes library from my old MBP laptop to my new iMac 5k.
    My entire iTunes library is stored on an external drive and can be accessed directly with my MBP. When I started up iTunes on my new iMac, it created a new empty library in the MUSIC folder. What I want to do is connect my new iMac to the external library directly. I can see it when I turn on HOME SHARING but only when iTunes is running on my MBP, which is useless since my MBP will now be seldom used. I have of course on the iMac, changed the library location in the advanced preferences to the external location, to no avail. I do not want to keep any media files on the iMac for capacity reasons.
    To compound the problem, I cannot seem to sync my new iPhone 6+ to the original external library, only the new empty one!
    Surely this ought to be a simple job, transferring an external iTunes library from one computer to another! Am I missing something obvious here?

    Wow, what a quick response! Thanks, Limnos. I guess it was bleeding' obvious, and I should have thought of it before. Such a simple solution!
    On a related matter, I also have just realised that the iTunes iOS backups are saved on the internal computer drive in a folder called MOBILESYNC rather than on an external drive, thus chewing up a lot of capacity on my SSD. Others reading this response may be interested to know that it is easy to have iTunes save the iOS backups to any external drive using a symbolic link in this directory. Go to ps-on-an-Alternate-Location
    for the details.
    However, note that iBooks will NOT let you use this work-around, pathetic app that it is.

  • Can I share itunes playlists from one computer to another?

    Can I share itunes playlists from one computer to another?

    My computer cannot run  Sharing so I don't have firsthand experience.  My reading of it is:
    1) Music sharing lets you stream (not transfer) select items, including specific playlists, between local computers on the same network.
    2) Home Sharing lets you stream or transfer media files between computers on the same network.  I don't know if this is as spacific as particular playlists, or you you have to make the playlist once the desired content is transferred.  It says media so doesn't look like it restricts transfer to specific playlists, it just makes your whole media collection accessible on another authorized computer.
    You can export a playlist file from iTunes, but this is a text file listing of content, not a complete playable package.

  • Can I move my itunes collection from one computer to another?

    Can I move an internal hard drive which has my itunes library (music transferred from my cd collection as well as music purchased from itunes) from one computer to another?  The second computer already has itunes on it but no sopied music from cd's.

    Yes, you can move the hard drive physically from one machine to another provided you are placing it as a secondary drive in the new machine. You can connect to the transferred library by holding down shift as you start iTunes, then browsing to the relevant folder and opening the iTunes Library.itl file inside. You may however want to reorgnize the drive if you're disposing of the old machine as its system files etc. will be redunant. In this case I suggest you move the iTunes folder to the root of the drive before you connect to the library. You should also deauthorise the old machine before you dismantle it.
    Ideally you should take a backup of your library before you start just in case something goes wrong. See this User Tip.for a suggested technique. Works with external drive or network shares.

  • Transferring home movies from one computer to another

    What is the best way to do this? I have about 500 video clips that I want to move from one computer to another. I've tried using the export function in iPhoto but all I get upon transfer is a single frame of the movie. I keep the files on an external HD but I can't find where they are stored. I see the iPhoto app to open but not the original files. Additionally, whenever I do locate these files, how can I get them transferred with the keywords assigned to them? TIA! Going from a MBP running 10.6.8 to a MBA running 10.8.2

    I'm not sure you can assign keywords to a movie on export, as these are written to the exif metadata of a photo and most video has no such metadata.
    You say you've tried the export function in iPhoto, but what settings have you used? Exporting with the Kind set to Original should yield the videos.

  • Transferring "My Rating" from one computer to another

  • Getting iTunes Library from one computer to another

    I recently got s a new computer so my sister was given my old one. I'd like to know teh easiest way to transfer iTunes from one computer to another. I have to do this twice, once from my old to my new, and from her old to my old.
    thanks for the help

    WHat you need to do, so everything is easy, is first consolidate the library in iTunes. What this does is takes every song currently listed in iTunes and COPY"S it to the My Mucis/iTUnes/iTunes Music folder.
    Once this is done you will copy the "iTUnes" folder to an external harddrive. this folder contains the important
    "iTunes Library" file with the rating, playcount, playlist and the "iTunes Music" folder with your songs.
    This is all covered at this link using an iPod to transfer (You can still use this artical for an external drive)

  • Question about moving all iTunes data from one computer to another.

    I have a Windows XP. Now I have a windows 7. All of the songs from the XP are available on the new computer via a Z drive. But when I plug my iPod into the new computer it says that it is registered with a different library and asks me if I want to delete all the songs and apps and replace them from the ones on the new library. I don't want that to happen. And all of the apps on the old computer aren't available on the new one. How do I get the apps from one computer to another, and how do I sync my iPod on the new computer without erasing all high scores, app data, songs, and other information? And how do I get a song fro the new computer back to the old one?

    This is the way I would normally recommend that you migrate your library from one computer to another.
    Backup the library with this User Tip.
    Restore the backup to your new computer using the same tool used to back it up.
    Deauthorize the old computer if you no longer want to access protected content on it.
    Keep your backup up-to-date in future.
    If you have content on the new computer that you want to add to the library on the old one then copy that across via network/memory stick etc. before attempting to migrate the library again.
