    My brother has told me its simple to switch over itunes library but sure he isnt gonna tell me, he is like that!!

    My iMac desktop is tiger 10.4.11 & i want to transfer my itunes library, including apps/films/tv shows etc to my macbook laptop which is 10.5.

    I have uploaded most of my pics to mobile me so that they are safe but I have home movies also & want to secure them.

    I was gonna upgrade the imac tiger to snow leopard as Im probably getting a time capsule as a gift & would need to be 10.5 or higher to use it I believe but i decided against that. I will just use the desktop for general browsing etc & not keep anything of sentimental value on it.

    Any advice would be great.

    If both iTunes are the same version you can just copy over the iTunes library folder inside the music folder over via external hard drive or target disk mode. Problems arise when you transfer a library from a different version.
