So, here's the deal: I recently acquired a Rev. B iMac G5, 17", 2.0ghz with superdrive and 1gb of RAM. That's all fine and dandy. Thing is, I want to transfer the songs on my iTunes library on my PC to my Mac. It seems simple enough, and I've read around before going off and posting this. Thing is, though, that my music on the PC is pretty spread out, its all over the place. And I have no more space, so consolidating onto a central location on my pc and then copying the folder with the .xml's for playlists and playcount info to my mac is not possible. I have ~25gb of music right now. I have a 40gb HD, and since it runs XP that means that I have, all in all, maybe 5gb of space after all XP files and music is accounted for. So y'see, impossible to consolidate on my PC. Also, it's not the case of simply etting ALL my music files and copying them off; I use my playlists A LOT (as a matter of fact I have 100+ playlists). No way I'l afford to lose that. However, when I try to consolidate onto my Mac via the network (i.e. change iTunes folder to Mac iTunes folder, tick off the keep music organized and etc), I get an error which says "Copying Music failed. The disk could not be read from or written to". This is getting very old very fast. Also, the network is basically my only way to connect both computers. I don't have firewire on my outdated 966mHz Dell. So my only option is the network. Oh, I also have an iPod, and I was thinking of using that. However, not all my songs are in playlists, and some are in more than one. Even though it seems like a good enough idea on paper, its inviable, I'd lose much information in the process of transferring to and fro with the iPod, like playlists and playcounts. So I'm stumped. Is there any other way of connecting my Mac to my PC, without using Firewire Target Mode? Also, does anyone know why this error is occurring? I can access my mac perfectly from my PC, and its there on the network (took me a while to get that working, though). Any thoughts? Can anyone help? Oh, and everything is up-to-date. I even updated my iTunes and still get zilch. Help me. Please.
