    I got a new Hard Drive (the last one died, but thankfully I had a backup*) and I have already imported all of my photos. But I want to import also all the other data about my photos, like the keywords they had. What files do I have to change or what would you recommend me to do?

    I'm having the same problem with iTunes, how do I import my iTunes Library? It says that it is not a valid file or something like that.

    Thanks,

    Roco

    *Even if you think you would never use your backup, or that it is a waste of time, consider it again. I would have killed myself if I hadn't have the backup.

    How did you back everything up? Assuming you let iTunes manage all your music files, dragging the iPhoto and iTunes folders back to their respective positions (Pictures and Music folders) on the new drive should have retained all your info.
