    How do I transfer my old library from iTunes to a new computer?

    Migration Assistant via Target Disk Mode or via network or via external HDD, just make sure to copy the complete iTunes folder (Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Music / iTunes).

    Btw, you are talking about two Macs aren't you?

    Ah, I understood the above as "No PCs", as the missing comma and verb(s) did not gave me your intended meaning of that "sentence". ("No, PCs.")

    Do you have an external HDD or network (ethernet) cable at your home? If so, just transfer the iTunes folder I guess.

    Also think about editing your thread title to include the information about you using Windows and not Mac OS X, as this is a rather Mac OS X centric board.

    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.
