I'm about to get myself a MacBook Pro and I currentley have an iMac. I know that when you first set up the OS when you recieve a Mac, it asks you if you would like to transfer data from your current Mac by way of firewireb ,ut the problem is that I'm moving across the country and I will be mac-less for a couple of weeks or so. All I want to transfer is my iTunes library and I will have a crappy little windows notebook for those couple of weeks.
I know this must be a stupid question, as it can probably just be done through compression and writing it onto a DVD or CD. But, what is the best way to do this? I don't really know much about mac compression software or anything. Any help or tips are appreciated, thanksabunch!

You certainly can transfer your library by DVD...how big is your library?

i should probably be embarasses to say this: 9.95GB. so you;'re saying to just straight burn it directly from iTunes with no compression? It makes sense, almost too easy for me to have thought of i guess

at first i thought you you mocking me accordingly, but thats actually very helpful. I didn't know that it could be used as a hard drive and a music player at the same time, i thought you had to choose.
Thank yoU!
