    I follwed the instructions for pc to mac transfer in guides at the top of this forum. I used the network file transfer option and got all the files moved over to the mac but I'm having trouble with step 23. When I drag the library.xml file over the iTunes icon nothing happens. Should I be dragging the library.xml file somwhere else?

    Drag it to Users / YOU / Music / iTunes and from there drag it to the iTunes icon in the Dock.

    I tried placing dragging the file to the itunes folder then from there to the itunes icon on the dock. Nothing seems to happen when I drag that file onto the itunes icon. All my music is now in the correct folder but itunes isn't recognizing any of it. What else could I be doing wrong?

    the way we do it is:

      • Copy all the new music to a folder you decide (the way it was on the other computer)
      • Open iTunes, set the itunes media library location in the advanced tab to that folder.
      • Close iTunes
      • Copy/replace the .xml and .itl files to the itunes music folder
      • Open iTunes

    Works for me,
