    Any way to move iTunes playlists to the new music app?


    I tried using the import feature, but it didn't find my custom playlists. Is there any way to move these playlists over without recreating them? I've hated iTunes for years, but I started way back when with them so I've just always been with them. However, with the new music stuff coming to the xbox and what not, I've decided to make the switch. Can I move these playlists?

    I was able to export playlists from iTunes (right click on the playlist and select export) using a format of m3u. I placed the export file in the iTunes library folder. Xbox on Windows 8 was able to find the playlist and successfully imported it. Good luck.
