    I just got a new pb and updated the address book, calendar and safari through my .mac account. How do I go about transferring my mail to my new computer? Is there a file that would keep all of my member names and passwords stored in safari/autofill? I also need to get my iphoto albums and itunes library transferred. What files do I need to transfer for those? Thanks

    Can anyone help? I need to get dreamweaver, itunes and iphoto updated on my new machine and don't know where the files are on my old one that will make them the same.

    If you still have your old computer, you could transfer the files using target mode, that would be a lot quicker than over the internet. As far as which files you need to transfer:

    iTunes: you will want the iTunes library file and the .xml file found in the library. Obviously, you will want the music folder as well.

    As for the others, I have done it before but without my mac in front of me I hesitate to tell you where to find them. (I am on a PC at work. :( )

    Maybe someone else can help you with that.
