    I've never been to this board but all my iTunes music (1200+) is on an old windows desktop from 2003 and the ONLY reason I still have it is because all my music is on it. I'm getting the iPhone 4S this week and I was wondering if I could plug in my phone and have it uploaded onto it. If not, what's the easiest way to switch my library to my laptop?

    Thanks.

    A little more detail than "That didn't work" would help us actually help you. There's not really much in the way of software to do this, because there's no point. Just drag and drop the iTunes folder onto a USB flash drive, then from there onto the Mac (make sure to place it in the Music folder in your Home folder).

    Easiest would be to get a USB drive or external hard drive to transfer the files from your old computer to your current one. Then install iTunes and drag all the music to it. I suggest letting iTunes organize the music for you. Personally, I think it's less hassle. Then when you plug your new iPhone, iTunes will see it and sync all your music.

    This may help.
