    How do I move my iTunes library from one pc to another. I dont want to buy the flash drives or cds. Is there another way I can do it.

    If you don't want to buy a flash drive or disc, one logical answer is for you to upload them to a site and then download the songs to your other PC. You can save about 100 songs in a .zip file and use something like [PIRACY.rs]/[PIRACY.mu]/etc and just download them again, but it's your choice, but I think having a flash drive/cd is better for keeping a backup just in case.

    Do what? Like I said...put the music files into a .zip...you can use winrar for that and when you have them in a ".zip" file just go to one of those websites or one of your choice and upload them..it will take a while, but then you'll have a link and simply go to the other PC and download..but seriously, a cd is better.

    No, and you don't need to delete your song to zip them in a file..if yo use winrar you can keep your original files and have a folder which is ready for you to upload. No there's no deleting involved.

    Don't you think it will take a long time? Downloading/Saving files from an iPod to the computer via SSH will take some time...But I think you and I agree that a cd/flash drive is better

    yep, i bought a 4GB flashdrive when i got my new compuuter and just copied all of my songs onto there and put them on my computer, lol but i just suggested that because recently 2 weeks ago, i decided to give OS X 86 one last shot, and i ended F'ing up my bootloader and then i had to download vista all over again, so that was my only way of retrieving all of my songs back
    oh, what OS do you have?
