    I just got a new macbook pro, I transferred all my information from my old one using an ethernet cable and the normal instructions when I was starting the new computer to transfer data.

    EVERYTHING tranferred perfectly, it's exactly the same as my old computer just 100x better. The only problem is my iTunes, I still have all my music in files on my harddrive. If I go to a specific music file and double-click, it will play through itunes, but I can't see anything.

    Everything on my itunes LOOKS perfect, all my old playlists are there, it says I have 281 podcasts waiting for me (typical...), but where it should show my library or podcasts or whatever, it's all blank.

    Ive tried unstalling and reinstalling itunes. I've tried dragging music into itunes, importing playlists, everything I can think of.

    If anybody can help me out I'd really appreciate it.

    I'm also not too computer savvy, so lay-man's terms would be appreciated too... :)

    I have just recently had the same problem, i called applecare and they had me perform a software update and everything returned to normal. Let me know if that helps your situation, i was transferring from a C2D to i7 15" MBP.

    If you have iTunes set up to manage your movies, music, etc., just copy your "iTunes" folder from one computer to the other and point iTunes on the new computer to use the folder you just transfered as its library.
