    so here's the story. I'm wanting to transfer my iTunes libary to my new PC from my old PC. I already have 5 computers authorized one of which is my old PC. I have a few qustions though.. 1. How would I do this safely without looseing any music, apps, ETC?
    2. When would I deautorize my old pc and authorize my new one?
    3. Will I still be able to plug my iphone and iPods in without messing any of them up?

    I tryed googleing this but couldn't find anything about my 3rd qustion.

    Thanks for any help.

    1. Just copy the whole iTunes folder (in your 'My Documents') to the same place on the new computer (use an external hard drive if you'd like).

    2. Yes - deauthorize the old one first.

    3. None of them should get messed up, but make sure you keep the old PC intact, just in case, until everything's running smoothly.
