I thought you said you copied your music to the new computer. If so, then your music should be there.
If you moved your entire itunes folder, then apps should be there as well.
You should copy everything from your old computer to your new one. You can use your backup copy to do this.powerbook g4, iMac 20, Mac OS X (10.6.1), airport express, iphone, ipod, ipod touch
Currently Being ModeratedJan 24, 2010 5:26 AM (in response to roaminggnome)I did copy my "music" folder but not my iTunes folder. My regular music folder has albums/songs from purchased CDs and/or music download from non-iTunes sites. Those were placed in my music folder on my old computer, that music folder was copied into the near-empty music folder on the new computer. I then installed iTunes from the Apple website on the new computer. From there, using iTunes I installed those tracks with the Add Folder/File command into iTunes. I didn't know that I could just copy the iTunes Folder from my old computer onto the new computer and my Apps and purchased Apple iTunes music would appear.
Can I now copy the iTunes folder from my old computer onto the new computer, overwriting the existing iTunes folder on the new computer? Or should I delete the iTunes folder on the new computer, before copying iTunes from old computer to the new computer? Hope this makes sense.Alienware Aurora, Windows 7, iPhone 32GS iTouch 32G
