    like the title says, how do i transfer playlists to a different computer. i already transfered music, but i want to trasnfer my playlist. my list like over 1500 songs i chose myself, and i dont want to go through my entire library picking each individual song over again. is there a way to just drag the playlist into my itunes on the other computer?

    Not sure but there's this,
    copy the "iTunes Music Library.xml" from one computer to the other and place it in the same place.
    Mine is located here on Vista
    Code:
    D:\Music\iTunes
    I believe it's based on where your music is stored, although it could be just the music folder itself on Windows. Mines both of those so i couldn't tell you.

    dang, i just spent that last 20 minutes recreating the playlists for my wife's iPhone to sync with my computer. This would have been helpful.
