    Hello All.

    I bought an eMac today but I also have an iMac G5, which all my music is on. Now I have about 650 songs in iTunes and I was wondering if there would be a easy way to transfer my music from one computer to another. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated because I don't want to have to download all my music again.

    Thanks,
    Shane Eliason

    I would connect the two computers together with firewire and boot the older system as a drive in firewire disk mode. Then drag all your songs into your eMac's iTunes.

    A firewire cable? Would that be like what connects an iSight to the computer.
    Also how could I boot the eMac into firewire disk mode. Or is the iMac the older system? Thanks.
