    I am havine a problem importing my library onto my new computer. When i select the file to be imported i get an error code. it says that the file cannot be imported because of an unknown error (-50).

    Does anyone have a suggestion?

    my new computer is vista and the old was xp but i dont think that should affect it.

    If you just place it in the iTunes folder in your Music folder when iTunes is closed, is it recognised as your library file?

    If this doesn't work, then let's start from the beginning. The easiest way to transfer a library between machines is with an iPod...
