    ok i have searched the forums and read most itunes migrations but they seem to cater for mac to mac using different HDD's.
    My problem is I want to migrate my pc itunes over on to my mac.
    I am comfortable at file copies and that but wondered if i was going to lose things like play count, favourites etc which are stored in the library file itself? Also my purchased tunes.

    I would hate to have to copy all my tunes across and start the library naming/play count etc from scratch :(
    Surely someone must have done this already?

    wow thanks, at least its a start I guess :) i have a fair few gig of music, in fact thinking about it now, I must have a FAIR FEW GIG as when I was halfway through my CD collection, I thought i would re do it all again, using the APPLE Lossless compression as I have a good car audio setup.

    mmm tempted at the full backup/restore now, shame you cant do it to HDD and only dvd's? might be an idea to use 2 or 3 dvdrw's and then cycle them, restoring to the MAC as you do it? (and hope you dont get an error halfway through!?)
