    Transfering itunes library


    Just bought new computer with Windows 8. I've been trying to transfer itunes library. Tried Home Sharing, but the only songs that transferred were the ones I purchased.

    Next I tried downloading individual songs to a flash drive and copying them to the Music file. This is working, but it is taking forever.

    Is there a quicker way to get my itunes library onto my new computer (old computer had Vista)?

    It should be easiest to simply move your entire Music collection to the My Music folder in Windows 8 then install iTunes and it will usually pick up your music collection straight away and add it to it's own Library.

    I've done this before and never had any problems with DRM.

    That's a good idea. I'll try that.
