New IMac Desktop, X-ferring Music To Itunes

Wed Nov 30, 2011 4:00 am

Ok, so I bought a new iMac desktop computer, and after a year of using mac, I'm still learning. What i'm most concerned with right now, is transferring all my music and videos from my iTunes on my Macbook Air to the iMac. Anyone a an Mac whizz who can show me how to do it?

Simple,

FIRST - make sure 'File Sharing' is turned on - on both computers.
---------

How - Launch System Preferences > Go to 3rd row of icons and select 'Sharing Folder'
you'll see a panel on the left side of the newly opened pane - check the File Sharing box and then
select 'turn on File Sharing'.

---------

The Macbook Air has no firewire interface/port - so connect your MacBook Air to the iMac via your internet connection or USB and drag your iTunes Music folder into the iMac Music (iTunes) folder - it's ask you wanna replace your itunes folder with the one you are moving - select 'yes' or copy (just affirm it).

and after all is copied...launch iTunes

and all your old MacBook Air iTunes (playlist) will now be that of the iMac.

The iTunes Library data icon is what's governing your iTunes setup and playlist arrangement.,
since you're copying... it'll be an exact match as was on the MacBook AIr.

Alternatively, You can turn on Home-sharing on both iTunes libraries, Sign in with the same account on both machines, On the iMac, Select the MacBook Air's library and select "Import" at the bottom of the page.
Coolier than thou.
