Any body can help me - My new Mac does not recognize the old one while the old one recognizes the new one - what to do?

    Any hints such as the models of computers you are running,  the operating system versions and versions of iTunes?  It's all relative; my "new Mac" is a 10 year old G4 running iTunes 7 and my old Mac is a 13+ year old G3 running OS9 and Soundjam that was to be eventually turned into iTunes.

    Grab the folder of files and drag them to a flash drive to copy them.  Stick the drive into the other computer and drag to iTunes to add them.

    Maybe somebody else can help.  On my old systems an with no AppleID I can't even try to set up Home Sharing to see what it does in detail and there is only so much I can glean from looking at screenshots posted by others.
