    I'm building a PC on Tuesday but want to keep my entire library, how do i do this? I'm keeping the music on an external HDD, and anything else i need to back up goes on the HDD. Basically when i download itunes on my new machine i want to load up all my music and artwork how it was on my old itunes, not manually add all the music again.

    I'm not sure how it would work on a PC but on a Mac if you hold down 'alternate' when you start iTunes it asks you if you want to create a new library or choose and existing one. If you choose an existing library and then navigate to your library everything should be exactly as it was.

    Hope this helps.
