    My old computer just crapped out, and I'm having a new PC built. I have a back up of the old PC's HDD, and I'm having the repair guys that tried to fix my old PC (who are building my new PC) transfer my data over. The iTunes library file was on the old PC's internal HDD, but all the songs, TV shows, podcasts, etc were on an external HDD that the repair guys don't have. I plan on having it all on the new PC's internal HDD this time.

    What will I have to do to get everything transferred? Is there an easy way to do it? :p When I install iTunes on the new PC, could I just replace the iTunes music folder on it with the old one?

    You can do that as long as both computers were running the same version of iTunes, otherwise iTunes will not be happy.
