So we used to share an account and have hundreds of songs on that account together. But I want my own account so is there any way to allow my new account to use the stuff from the other one?
You cannot move purchases from 1 iTunes account to another.
Do you now have separate computers?
Yes , but it more of could I get updates from apps I bought on the other account or sync music that I bought on there.
I have the same issue. I understand the apps can be copied but not updated. I've been directed to use "home sharing" to copy music from old account/library to the new. Have you tried that?
