I copied my iTunes app and the whole library folder over from my computer file database on another machine.

Where is the file I need to get to make my playlists and other prefs come back into iTunes? :confused:

If you copied over the entire folder as you stated, then your playlists and ratings, etc., should all be preserved, assuming you pointed iTunes to this new folder as its source for the Library. If you want to transfer over other preferences, you need to transfer the com.apple.iTunes.plist file from your library.

Yep, it's easy. If you're running iTunes 7, just hold down the option key when you open iTunes. It should ask you to locate the Library. At this point you can choose the folder you copied over.
