I know that many variations of this question has been asked time and time again, but I have not been able to find a clear and concise answer on either MacRumors or Apple's Support Forums, so please help me. I have an iMac G5 with around 200GB of movies and music that I want to transfer to my new iMac Intel. However, I also want to maintain the playlists, ratings, song count, album covers , etc. when I import. From what I have read and done so far, I have attached an external firewire hard drive and pointed iTunes to that as being the location of the library. I then selected "copy all files to this location", "let iTunes manage", etc. and consolidated the library (I had stuff all over the place). So, now I have everything consolidated onto my external drive. At the moment, I see all of the files for music, movies, podcasts, etc. However, I don't see the library or .xml files on the external. Instead, they are still on my internal drive in the User/Music/iTunes folder (along with my downloaded album covers folder). What is the next step in transferring them into my new iMac while maintaining the library, playlists, ratings, song count, album covers, etc? Thank you in advance.
