Hey, this has probably been done before, but everywhere I look on the net I get conflicting comments. Basically, I am switching in just over a weeks time. I want my Windows iTunes collection on my new Mac. I have spent HOURS making sure my tags are perfect on the thing so dont want it to mess up in that respect. Also, my playcounts and ratings being lost would be akin to losing a son lol. I have rated 3 quarters of my collection, so losing them in the switch is not an option. I have no external hard disk, and no DVD burner. My iTunes collection is about a gig more than my iPod, but I can sacrifice some music so that it all fits onto an iPod. I have backed up my database and xml files and sent them to Gmail as an added precaution. Now, how do I go about preparing the files for transfer to the Mac? Hopefully you guys can help.
