    Hi there,

    On a Windows laptop there is a playlist of music which I would like to transfer to my Mac. I don't want to transfer the entire library, just this one playlist.

    The only problem is they are on different iTunes accounts (family one and my personal one)

    I was just wondering what would be the easiest/best way to transfer the music.

    Many thanks

    I know this works on my mac, not sure if it works in windows, but its worth a try.

    Please be sure you are not breaking copyright terms and that you have purchased the tracks.

    1. Open iTunes.
    2. Select the playlist
    3. Select all tracks, (press Control + 'A')
    4. Then 'Copy' - (press Control + 'C')
    5. Now create a folder on the desktop and open it then 'Paste' - (press Control + 'V')

    The folder should now contain duplicates of all the music files that are in the playlist.
    Now you just need to copy the files from the folder on the Windows desktop onto another drive, which can then be connected to the Mac and then added to the Macs iTunes library.
