Use the import command in iTunes and select all the songs on your USB drive by highlighting the first, holding down shift and highlighting the last song.

You can also just copy your entire iTunes folder which is under User/Music

Just drag and drop the iTunes folder onto the Thumb Drive. When you go to import it onto another computer, go to iTunes->File->Add to Library and select the folder on your thumb drive

He wants to do it the other way: iTunes to USB stick.
