Hello all,

I just bought my first Mac and I am not sure how to put my 800+ songs that are on my IPHONE and my Windows XP computers hard drive onto my IMAC. Which one will work or is easier / more efficient etc?

imac 2.0, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

Supposing both machines are in the same network, just share a folder on your Windows XP machine containing your iTunes Music Library. Connect to your Windows machine using SMB and copy the music over to your new Mac. After that, drag and drop the music into iTunes, and your Music will get imported.

There are several other ways to move music (including making a backup CD from within iTunes), but this should be the fastest way.

See here for more information on networking with a Windows PC:

Syncing your music "down" from your iPhone on your new Mac is not possible without hacks for your iPhone.
