I have searched this forum and the internet for examples of how to move my iTunes library metadata from my iBook to my Mac mini, but I can't find any good answers. I keep my iTunes library automatically organized and I have the library consolidated. The library itself is stored on an external drive and I have that working fine from my iBook. I want to move my playlists, etc. into the Mac mini and keep all the metadata. I will also plan to keep the library in the external drive and just point to it from within iTunes. Why is this so hard? This article is the closest I've seen to an answer, but I'm hoping that there is a cleaner solution.
