    Hi

    I have just got a new imac OSX 10.8 (Lion) and want to transfer ONLY the itunes library (music, movies etc) but NOT anything else from the old computer which is OSX 10.5.8.

    I want to use my NETWORK

    Using the migration assistant & the network i have established contact between the two computers and have turned file sharing on and the firewall off on both computers.

    on migration assistant a box comes up USERS etc. on this screen is there a way to ONLY select the itunes library??

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    cheers

    I think you'll be required to select the user, then expand and select your music.

    I don't think Migration Assistant allows you move only iTunes.

    You should be able to use File Sharing to move the iTunes folder from the old computer to the new one, though.

    Or even Home Sharing to do it all through iTunes.... (e.g. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3819)
