    Hey, I just got my new MacBook today.


    I know a lot about Macs but this is finally the first one I got!



    Anyway, how do I go about moving my entire iTunes library from my old PC to my new MacBook?


    I have an 80GB iPod Touch

    Your best bet is to copy the iTunes folder over to the Mac. Pick your favorite method of moving a large folder. Please don't try DVDs.

    where do i copy it to? specific place?

    I already have my entire iTunes on an external that I use. It actually reads it from my external since my old PC had a full hard drive, so could I just plug that in and copy it?

    And then what do I have to do to open it?

    I dont have to click every single song do I?

    Just copy the entire iTunes folder. It's default location is ~/Music.
