Hi, I'm not very tech savvy but have a new windows 8 pc and am having trouble replicating my iTunes library, playlists apps etc.

Have installed iTunes (after some problems finding one that would download - solved thanks to reading one of these posts - thanks).

Have authorised iTunes on my new computer - and the library therefore only contained purchased music, no apps etc.

Then I transferred all files to my new pc using windows easy transfer - these included my old itunes files which were I think consolidated (I had that cheecked in itunes on old pc) so I think should have included my uploaded music and playlists as well as that purchased from apple.


How do I now make sure that the itunes on the new pc is recognising this library, not the one created by default?

I want to be able to sync my iphone without losing music and for my apps etc to appear  in the library.

Have tried to make sense of the support guidance but think I may have more than one itunes file on the new computer and am now stuck... help!


iPhone 4, Windows 8
