    I recently upgraded my powerbook and have the old Itunes library stored on my xHD. How do I properly transfer the music library to the new PB. Their is no library listed in libraries for music so I am confused. Please help.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Launch iTunes, and click through a couple of configuration options. Once iTunes comes up shut it down. In your Home directory/Music will be an iTunes folder. You can rename it if you want, or simply overwrite it with the iTunes folder on your external hard drive. Just copy the iTunes folder from your external drive to your new PowerBook. Launch iTunes again and you should see all your music. If you have any songs purchased from the iTunes Music Store you'll have to Authorize that computer to be able to play those songs. That option is under the Advanced menu.

    Regards,
    Marc
