How to Transfer iTunes Music to Another Computer
Answer: To transfer music from iTunes library to another computer, you have two easy ways to be followed.
As you know, if you download or purchase music, videos, audiobook and more from iTunes, iTunes will save them on the iTunes folder on your computer. Thus, to transfer iTunes Library to another computer, you can plug into an external hard drive or a USB flash drive to the computer, and then, copy the iTunes folder to it.
Firstly, Find the iTunes folder on the computer. In Windows 7, the iTunes folder is saved here: C: \Users\Administrator\Music\iTunes. If your computer running Windows XP, Vista or other, you can go and find the iTunes folder in the similar save path.
Secondly, download and install iTunes on another computer. Navigate to the save path of iTunes folder on this computer.
Thirdly, connect the external hard drive or USB flash drive to the computer. Then, copy the old iTunes folder and replace the new one.
