Learn about iTunes: How to move your music to a new computer

HT4527 I transferred my items media to an external drive, but found that there was a file left on my PC that was full of album artwork.  Is there a different function required to move artwork?

I transferred my itunes media folder to an external drive so I could save space on my PC.  Some time after I did this, I found a folder still itunes still on my PC.

Inside it had a folder called Album Artwork that was filled with files I could not open, but I assume belong to the songs I had moved.  There are also other files in this PC folder that have moblie apps, previous itunes libraries, as well as a few items listed as itunes database files and a bunch of .tmp files.


Did I do something wrong in moving my songs?

I cannot understand why all of this data still exists on my PC when I had moved the media folder to another hard drive.

When I try to get artwork for new songs, they go still to this PC folder.  Can anyone offer me any guidance?
