    Hi,

    Not sure if this is the right place for this question but.....

    I have an old OLD old pc that has lots of great music on it. I was wondering if there is any way that I can get that music off of the computer without having to install Boot Camp or anything to my Mac??

    Do I have to convert it, somehow, into another format???

    Is it possible to just put a flash drive into the hard drive, save the music to it, then put the flash drive into my Mac, and voila, have my music?? Please tell me this is something simple to do!!!

    thanks
    DAwn

    You can just use a flash file. Audio formats are universal so they should all work in Mac too

    The only complication would be if you imported your music as WMA using Windows Media Player instead of MP3/AAC/M4A.

    Then you would need some software other than iTunes to play it on your Mac. (like Perian). Or to convert it to one of the iTunes formats.

    Also depending on how much music and how big your flash drive is, you might have to make multiple trips.
