New to the mac.  I have a new Mini.  I am trying to move my libraries to the Mini.  I Added library by selecting the books folder on my old drive (in a usb3 enclosure). It looks like it is processing the additions and then, when itunes is done with the import, there are no books displayed.

    iTunes: How to move [or copy] your music [library] to a new computer [or another drive] -


    Quick answer if you use iTunes' default preferences settings:  Copy the entire iTunes folder (and in doing so all its subfolders and files) intact to the other drive.  Open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option (alt) key (shift on Windows), then guide it to the new location of the library.itl file in the moved iTunes folder.
