    I have a big collection of songs in iTunes in SnowL. Recently I've installed an SSD drive on my iMac with Yosemite and i want to transfer the collection there (on the Yosemite iTunes). How should i do this transfer so that i don't loose the music list attributes that are set on the SL iTunes version?

    Its not a 2 macs issue. I have one mac with 2 drives, at boot i choose with which drive to start with, on the hard rive i got SnowL and on the SSD drive i have Yosemite.

    Same difference whether the second drive is external or internal.

    I will format the SnowL hard drive, the ssd drive will be my primary drive. I will not operate iTunes from SnowL, i want all the songs to be on my Yosemite iTunes with all the attributes (rating, date added etc.) that were given in SnowL iTunes.

    I'd think just booting SL, then dragging the your SL music folder over to replace the Yosemite music folder.
    Then booting under Yosemite and starting iTunes would get all the attributes, playlists etc over where you want them.
    If you don't want to move the music to the SSD, then simply holding down the option key while starting Yosemite's version of iTunes, will let you select your old music library, and update it to a Yosemite compatible version, on your old HDD.
