I Tunes help

  hugh144 13:47 14 Mar 2009


I have approximately 500 songs on my old PC and are on my Apple I Pod. As I have a new PC can anyone advise me as to whether I have to re-copy the songs from the CD's onto I Tunes?

Your advice would be appreciated.

Your music will be in a folder in My Music, probably called ITunes !Copy this folder to a USB memory stick of adeqaute size and then copy it back onto your new pc. OR copy onto a DVD and then copy back to new pc.

Hi Iscanut

Many thanks for your prompt reply - very much appreciated as I didn't fancy the tedious job of re-copying the CD's.

Have a good weekend.

Two further points; When you install iTunes on new PC you need to authorise it (and, if you wish) de authorise the old one by clicking on "store" in iTunes and following the prompts.
Second. Strongly reccomend you have a back up of your tunes somewhere else, such as an external Hard Drive, or at worst on DVD's (as data files) - just copy the iTunes Music folder to the back up location.

Another alternative (be careful to have back up) is to set up i tunes to manually sync. iPods, then import your tunes from the i Pod - temporarily using it as an external hard drive and using windows expolrer to copy the iTunes muic folder from the iPod to a folder on the new PC. Probably easier to do what iscanut says.

Many thanks to all for taking the time to reply. It looks as if iscanut's response is the easiest option.

(This forum is marvellous - used it a number of times over the years).

Diolch yn fawr.
