    have used migration assistant to transfer music and photo files from my mbp to imac - used network not firewire - all seamed to work - said it was complete - now cannot seam to find the files on the imac - was i a bit too hopeful that they would just pop in to iphoto and itunes? could someone let me know where they will be? thank you very much, clare

    The default folder for iTunes music is
    /Users/your_username/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media (or iTunes Music in older versions of iTunes)

    The migration assistant might have copied the files, but it doesn't mean it has created your iTunes library again. If so, the only thing you have to do import your music to iTunes again, by dragging and dropping while iTunes is open.

    The case might be the same with iPhoto.
