    If i have 2 macbooks and want to copy one itunes library and iphoto library to the other macbook do i just use migration assistant (or whatever its called).. I want to just COPY not transfer and erase off the old one.. So i want to be bale to transfer it but still be able to play music on the old computer.. so i guess what im getting at is when using migration assistant does it transfer the files, or just copy and transfer? thank you!!

    Migration Assistant would do that, or you can just copy the contents of the Music and Photos folders on one computer to the corresponding folders on the other.

    Are you using the same operating system on both?
    Have an external drive? Copy your iphoto and itunes user folders to the external. Then on the other macbook replace the iphoto and itunes user
    folders with the ones on the external.
