I would like to copy my iTunes library from my home iMac to a PC laptop (I know, don't ask, it's a work tool)
- without clogging that work PC with all the music data, so I am thinking external drive.
Here are my questions:
first, how do I need to format that drive? MS-DOS (FAT) or else? (just purchased a LaCie mobile drive)
second, what do I do, back up from within iTunes or just move MyMusic folder over to external drive?
Any help is highly appreciated, first week on PC here!
Format the drive MS-DOS.
Copy the entire /Music/iTunes/ folder from the iMac to the external.
Plug the external into the Windows computer.
Hold Shift and launch iTunes.
Select Choose library.
Select the iTunes folder on the external.
That is all you need to do.
