    I got a MBP 2.4 GHz 15 Inch today, this was to replace my old iBook G4. I have several hundred songs that I want to put on my new MBP, but I purchased them from iTunes on the iBook. Can I get some suggestions on how to transport these songs to my new computer.

    I'd probably use Migration Assistant personally.

    (1) Target disk mode, but the 6pin fire wire will cost you $40-$50 if you don't have one

    (2) USB Flash drive

    (3) SSH? (never tried it, but.......)

    I used a 2gb flash drive and that seemed to do the trick. Granted it did take a few transfers, but it got the job done! I had it lying around which meant I didnt have to go out and buy a firewire cord! :D

    Setup Assistant. Everything comes over intact, including user name and info. Firewire target mode. Virtually a piece of cake.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that.

    But another vote here for Setup Assistant, used that before to help a friend with files and songs with great success
