I just upgraded my laptop from an iBook to PowerBook.

How do I transfer my itunes to my PowerBook?

1.) Read the posting guidlines

2.) Copy your music folder, iTunes Library (XML file I think), and iTunes Preferences files to your powerbook. You can find the location first two by checking your iTunes prefs. The third will be in your preferences folder in your Library folder in your Home folder.

OK, I have given up keeping this sig up to date. Lets just say I'm the guy that installs every latest version as soon as its available!

Then, deauthorize the iBook from playing your iTMS songs.

Um, hmm... what else... I think that's about it.

Personally, I used my iPod to transfer my iTunes library, but I didn't have both iBooks together at the same time, either.

Yes, the music and iTunes Library file can be located by going into iTunes prefs -> Advanced. Also, you can use iTunes to export the library file, if you like. Just go to File -> Export Library.

Unless you've set up your iTunes Library to be somewhere other than the default location, you should just need to copy the iTunes folder in the Music folder in your Home folder - that's where the iTunes Library files AND the music files are.

The Preferences are optional, but can't hurt.

FWIW, I didn't move the Preferences file.

At least I don't think I did. Hmm...

(that should probably indicate that there wasn't enough of a process to make me lose my mind and reaaallly pay attention.. lol)
