    You need to move the whole itunes folder and subfolder from the hard drive

     

    usually found

     

    username/Music/itunes

     

    NB copy the iTunes folder not just the iTunes Media Folder. If you just copy the iTunes Media Folder you will lose all your playlists, ratings and plays
