I think your best way would be to do this the other way round. From your old itunes library delete all the music tracks in AAC That you have already ripped in Lossless in your new iTunes library. You are now lwft with an iTunes library that has all your iTunes content etc. That you wish to keep.
Now simply import all the new lossless tracks that you have been ripping into the old library and you will have everything you need.
Do not empty the trash ( which will have all your old AAC files) until you are happy with the transfer.
Thanks - I'd considered that but was wary of doing it in case I got left with unintended legacy items in the old itunes library.
Assuming I make a backup copy of the old library before proceeding, what's the best way of deleting the entire contents of the old library, including metadata before importing the Lossless files in? Are there any preference files (or whatever they are called) that need to be deleted as part of the process? What I want to avoid is duplicates or intermittent problems caused by the old metadata conflicting with the new files.
