    I just got a mini and all of the itunes library was on an external drive hooked up to my imac. So, I just unplugged the external and plugged it into the mini.
    The library came across, but in the process lost all of the ratings and play count.
    Is that information still on the imac? How can I transfer to the mini.
    Thanks

    on you imac you need to find the itunes library file (probably in ~/Music/iTunes/) and copy it to your mac mini.

    Thanks, that worked. I copied over the whole itunes folder.
    Now, the itunes main window is too large for my screen. I can't get down to the lower right hand corner to re-size. Green button brings up a mini player.
    Was that a setting from the 24" imac?

    Hold down your option key and click on the green button.

    Thanks, before I read the last post, resized itunes on the 24 and copied over again.
