    Copying my WHOLE MUSIC LIBRARY to another pc?

    Hi folks!


    I have my ipod touch and itunes on my sisters laptop. ALL my stuff apps/music (300 songs) is on the laptop and i am happy with syncing it with my itouch. However, she will be taking her laptop to college now. She still wants to keep the music on there so she can connect it to
    speakers and listen to it at college (she has no ipod).

    is there a way to transfer my whole MUSIC library/playslists/track information (such as play count, order, album artwork etc. etc.) to my desktop (win xp) ?

    I get the feeling the answer is 'no'

    Thanks man

    Noo... I don't think you can do that... It is possible to do it for your music library, though... There was a thread about it, search and find it.

    I think that's possible using iTunes' built-in backup function. Give it a try. Worst case would be that you lose a disc (you have to burn..) but at least you can copy the whole music.

    yes use the backup function of iTunes it'll work! (already did that)
    Just look into the menus in iTunes there should be an option to backup library. Then just burn it.

    click the backup function and iTunes will ask for a disk. Put in the disc and wait until cd/dvd is burnt then take the cd/dvd and put it into your Desktop with iTunes open. iTunes will ask you if you want to import then just do that.

    Some music libraries are too big for a CD (or even a DVD). I used Senuti (a Mac app) to copy all the music and info directly from the iPod. I know you apparently don't have a Mac, but there's programs for Windows that copy music from the iPod to the computer.
    I'd try the backup first, though.
