    hi, i have my old Music folder from my previous macbook, containing the itunes folder and its varous folders and files in turn. How do i import all the music and artwork into my new itunes folder on my new laptop correctly? i have previously dragged about 4gb (its total size is 40gb) into itunes just so i had something to stick on my ipod, but i noticed that most (not all) of the artwork that was associated was no longer there. I've since deleted that 4gb of content in preparation for starting over with the entire 40gb. As i say, the Music folder is a copy of that on my old laptop, so it should all be in there somewhere.

    thanks

    well, i can just drag the music in there no problem, and no software required, but when i tried this only some of the artwork went with it. I suppose im just wondering why it happened that way... there must be a logical reason, and a solution.
