ITunes :: Transferring Library From Old Computer To New

Nov 6, 2010

I had ITunes on Win XP, desktop. All my selections have been downloaded to my IPOD. Have now purchased new laptop but had problems transferring ITunes library from old computer to new so just recreated Library from scratch on new laptop by copying my CD's but did not have all CD's as some were borrowed. In other words, I now have songs on my IPOD (and on old desktop) that I was not able to reload onto the Laptop.

I want to make sure that when I plug my IPod (which now has all the songs on it from my desktop) into the laptop, I don't lose those that are not in my Laptop library. Do I have to upload into the laptop from the IPOD those which have not been duplicated? Or make CD's of the songs on the desktop that I couldn't load in, and upload them to the laptop?

ITunes For Mac :: Transferring Library To A New Computer - Error (-50)

Dec 3, 2014

I recently purchased a Retina iMac running OS 10.10.1.   My previous computer is a Mac Pro (2006) with 10.7.5 (latest OS it will support).  The Mac Pro has iTunes 12.0.1 with the database files on the system hard drive and the media files on a secondary internal hard drive.  getting my iTunes library on to the new iMac. 

Migration Assistant doesn't work.

Open Migration Assistant on the iMac and it finds the Mac Pro and offers a code which should be verified on the Mac Pro.  Open Migration Assistant on the Mac Pro and tell it to "Transfer to another Mac" and get the spinning gear.  Left it on all night, they never connected. 

Consolidating my iTunes library back to the Mac Pro system hard drive doesn't work.

Following the directions from Apple Support, I pointed my current copy of iTunes (on the Mac Pro) to the default Music folder in order to consolidate the library all in to one folder so that I could transfer it at once to the iMac (iTunes > File > Library > Organize Library).  After about 20 minutes I got an error message: "Copying files failed. An unknown error occurred (-22)".  I assume there is one or more files screwing this up, but can't figure out which one(s). 

Simply copying the entire iTunes media folder over my network from the Mac Pro to the iMac doesn't work.

Error (-50) and the copying fails before it gets more than 50 mb.  I'm currently attempting to copy one folder at a time.  But I don't assume that I'll be able to rebuild my old library on the new machine this way. 

The current iTunes library is about 250 GB.  It is slow, but works on the old machine.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

OS X :: Transferring ITunes Library From PC To Mac

May 29, 2009

This will be my first mac. (Can't wait!) I consider myself pretty tech savvy, but when I transfer my iTunes library, can I go into iTunes, select all the songs, put them in a new folder, and transfer that folder to the new Mac? Will the Mac/iTunes automatically sort them and stuff? (My iTunes library is split into 3 different libraries. When opening iTunes, I have to hold down shift and double click and select my .xml to open up my iTunes.) Any other tips for transferring files over a network?

My wife and I have an iPhone each with our individual music collection on each. My music library is on my Macbook Air but my wife's is on an Acer laptop that has now broken so she is unable to add any new CD's she purchased to her library, I've tried logging into my Mac as a new user and using a different iTunes but it gives a message that all existing content will be wiped off the phone as it is a new library.

I'm looking to buy a powerbook, and I'm wondering if there is some easy way to transfer all my existing music files, as well as my playlists, ratings, etc.. from my powermac (MDD) to my new machine. I'm guessing there must be some simple way to do it with an ethernet or firewire cable.

ITunes :: Transferring Full Library From Mac To Win 7 PC

Jun 3, 2012

How to transfer a full itunes Library from Mac to PC.

iTunes 10.6.1 on old Mac
160GB ipod
Transferring to new Windows 7 Laptop

iTunes 10.6.1 does not seem to have the 'File > Library > Back up to Disc' function available

From Apple's site:"Windows operating systems don't recognize Mac OS-formatted disks (HFS or HFS Plus formats), so you can't use a Mac-formatted iPod to move your music to a Windows PC."

Is it possible to move this entire library to the new PC? It is ok if I need to deauthorize the itunes on Mac.

Info:
iPod Classic, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Applications :: Transferring ITunes Music / Library From PC To Mac

Jan 11, 2011

So I recently just got my MacBook Pro in mail yesterday. The first thing I wanted to do was to transfer my itunes music/library from my PC to my new Mac so that I kept all my playlists and count numbers and etc. I watch the video on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cyy993m1nPo) of david kadavy showing how to do it but however he does it from one mac to another.

I have a PC and I did everything he did correctly. When I tried to import my library.xml file it said "not all files were able to be transferred because they may not exist". So can anybody help me transfer my library from my PC to my Mac? BTW both of my iTunes on my PC and Mac were up to date.

OS X :: Transferring ITunes Library From SLOW Drive

Apr 4, 2009

About six months ago I ran into the problem a lot of people face with a macbook, where my itunes library was taking up an unreasonable portion of my internal hard drive. I took the easy way out, and just got a 500gb usb seagate portable. Now being that I'm a dj, and I'm always producing tracks and remixes on the go I needed to have my music with me all the time so I velcroed the drive to the back of my mac and basically always left it on and treated it like a second partition.

Applications :: Transferring ITunes Library On IMac?

Mar 9, 2010

I just recently got a new iMac and I want to transfer my iTunes library on over. My primary rig used to be a MBP and to conserve HD space, I put my music library on an external HD. The problem is that I can't seem to get it to work. So, rather than me describing my failed attempts, let me show you where I'm at. The first pic is Steve(my user name)>Music>iTunes on my iMac. As you can see, a few of my folders have populated but obviously everything is not there. Also, for instance, the song Twilight of the Thunder Gods by Amon Amarth doesn't play even though the folder is in there. It *will* however play if I have my external HD plugged in because it locates the song on said device. The second picture is that of the same folder on my external HD. As you can see, all of my song folders are there. I currently have my iTunes Media folder location set to Users>Steve?Music/iTunes.

ITunes For Mac :: Transferring Library From NAS To Hard Drive

Aug 21, 2014

After weeks of issues since migrating my entire iTunes library to a NAS (WD MyCloud) from a PC I think I'm going to move it to the harddrive of my new iMac. 

My questions are: 

1) iTunes keeps showing that there are around 150 songs it can't locate (displays the exclamation mark next to the songs) which I then have to find manually - do I need to find all songs first before moving the library? 

2) The total size will eventually be around 550GB once all further CD's are ripped - will this considerably slow down my iMac which is 1TB? (so far I have only used 79GB of it) 

3) One of the reasons I want to move the library is that the NAS somehow more than duplicated most of the files so now my itunes shows I have 264GB of music but the NAS is showing 540GB - iff I migrate the iTunes library, I'm assuming it will only move the 264GB that it links to and not all the duplicates - is this correct?

OS X :: Transferring ITunes Content To New Account On Same Computer?

Feb 9, 2010

I recently had to create a new account (admin) because of problems with the old one. I've now been using the new account with no problems for a few weeks, and am ready to ditch the old one completely. I've got everything organised except my iTunes content. iTunes on the new account behaves as if there's nothing there, so I can see I've got some work left to do.

I authorised iTunes on the new account for both the iTunes store (was told it already was authorised) and for my [URL] account. I changed permissions to read and write for everyone on iTunes in the old account, but that didn't help anything.

Is there a simple way to do this? Once this is transferred I want to delete the old account completely, so setting content up to share isn't the best solution for me.

Applications :: Import Old Computer's ITunes Library To New Computer?

Dec 8, 2009

I have all my music on an external HD that I've used for a few years. I told my old computer (1GHz TiBook G4 with Tiger) to export my iTunes library, which it did, as a .xml file. Then, I opened that file on my new iMac, and only about 1/5 of the songs were found, apparently. This doesn't make sense to me, as the iMac is connected to the HD when I import the old library. If it makes a difference, the TiBook was NOT connected to the HD when I exported the library. I have the two computers networked together via Ethernet right now, though.

ITunes For Mac :: How To Load Old Library Into New Computer

Jun 28, 2014

I was recently using a PowerPC G4 with OS X 10.5 and recently upgraded to a Mac Mini with OS X 10.9. I want to restore my iTunes library from the old computer since it took a long time to get all the playlists together. I moved over the old playlist files and of course all my music, but I cannot get the library to show. I had to move my iTunes library into that "automatically add to iTunes" folder to get it to show in iTunes, but I still can't get the playlists and stuff to come up. I did the thing where I hold down the option key while starting up and then choose the library, but nothing changes in iTunes. It also seems like the file that might really be my library isn't selectable. So is there anyway that I can get my old library into the new iTunes on my new computer?
