    Apologies in advance of the 'basicness' of this question but I seem to be having trouble copying all my current songs on my PC, dumping them onto the external drive I've got, to then drop them onto my new iMac:apple:.

    Can someone tell me if you simply select all songs, then copy and paste them onto the ext drive? or if you 'export'? :confused:

    I've been trying to do this and all I seem to get is 4gb out of 16gb onto the drive??

    Once again, apologies if this is really daft.:(

    Can't you just copy your entire iTunes folder over, including the library files and everything?
