I have my current Apple ID (ex: email@example.com) and it's the same one I use for the iTunes store. I have my iTunes music library, which is 100 albums burned via cds and 10 albums purchased thru iTunes. I want to create a new Apple ID (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org) and use it with iTunes/iTunes store, as well. I have read other people's posts about how music you purchased on one Apple ID can't be transferred or whatever to a new Apple ID. But when I look at the kind of files my iTunes library consists of - the 10 purchased albums from iTunes are Purchased ACC Files - which is supposedly the updated, DRM-free version of the old protected files. And articles I have read explaining these file types leads me to believe that they could be added to my new library without any issue. Or am I wrong? What I mean by added is simply this - using the new Apple ID, when I open iTunes, I'll have no library showing. But I have my external drive with my old iTunes folder and all the music files saved. So can't I just import everything and it will all show? The 100 cds that I own and imported myself and the 10 albums from iTunes? I don't care if they don't show in purchase history. But these articles I read sound like the 10 purchased items would transfer. --- Post Merged, Apr 25, 2016 --- I guess I could just change the email address associated with my Apple ID. But does this actually change the Apple ID? For ex: email@example.com is the Apple ID and the email address I use. If log into My Apple ID and change firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com, does this then make the Apple ID firstname.lastname@example.org (and keep all past purchases) or only updates the email address itself? Would things like posts on Apple Forums and all that stuff still be ties to even the updates ID/email?
