    I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask this question. I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Dimension. It's XP home...can I set up seperate iTunes libraries for each of my kids on thier own user accounts?


    Is there anything special I need to do to move my iTunes library to my new iMac?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yeah, you can set up separate accounts with different libraries.

    As for transferring libraries. So long as iTunes is set to manage your files (an option in the Advanced section of iTunes preferences) then it's merely a matter of copying your old iTunes library onto the new iMac in the Music folder. They transfer across platforms perfectly. :)

    The iTunes folder should be in My Music by default. It contains the iTunes Music folder and two iTunes Library files. You'll need all three.
