Any information on which computers you're speaking of would be very helpful.

Do you have an iPod? How to use your iPod to move your music to a new computer (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300173)

If not, the best way might be to network the two computers together, and move the whole iTunes folder over.

Or, if you have two Macs, just use Firewire target mode on the old one, then move your iTunes Music Folder (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301748) and then the iTunes Library file.

what you do is make sure that you have a little more than half of your ipod empty.. if you have more than half used take stuff out of the library and put it somewhere else on your computer for the time being... then go into ipod options (only works if ipod is connected) and then clik enable disk use... then go to my computer and find your ipod.. enabling disk use make take aminute to set itself btw.. and then from the libary select the libary and transfer it to the disk in my compueter... then plug it into the new computer and take the mucis off it.. do it agian if you had to remove songs from your library becuase ipod was mor ethan half full. THisi inscruutction for windows... but it is generally the smae for mac
