The iTunes library is a database that contains all the music and other media files that you have added to your iTunes application. You can transfer this library to a new computer if you are moving to a new Mac or if you want to share it with another person. When you transfer your iTunes library to a new computer, you will need to have access to both computers so that you can copy over the files.
- Download and install the latest version of iTunes on your computer
- Connect your device to your computer with a USB cable, then open iTunes and select your device
- Click Summary, then click Check for Updates
- Click Sync in the lower-right corner of the screen after your update downloads
- If you’re asked to replace or merge files, choose Replace to keep all of your current songs and videos on your device, or Merge to keep only songs and videos that are not already in your library on your device from iTunes Match

How Do I Move My Itunes Library to Pc?
If you’re moving your iTunes library to a new computer, you can back up and restore your iTunes media files. Here’s how:
First, update to the latest version of iTunes.
Then use one of these methods to transfer your iTunes library to your new computer: – Use iPod or iOS device: Connect your device to your new computer and use the File Sharing feature in iTunes to copy over your media files. – Use an external hard drive: Copy the entire iTunes folder (the one that contains all your music and other media) from your old computer to an external hard drive, then connect that drive to your new computer and copy the folder into the appropriate location on the new machine (see below).
– Use Apple Music or iCloud Photos: If you’re already using either Apple Music or iCloud Photos, simply turn on those features on your new computer and everything will be transferred automatically. Once you’ve got all of your files in place, open up iTunes on the new machine and point it at the folder where you copied them. To do this, go into Preferences > Advanced and click Change… under “iTunes Media Folder Location.”
From there, just navigate to wherever you copied over those files from earlier. Now everything should show up in iTunes just like it did before!

How Do I Transfer Itunes from Iphone to Computer Itunes?
Assuming you would like to know how to transfer your iTunes library from your iPhone to a computer:
There are a few different ways that you can go about doing this. One way is to use iCloud.
If you have iCloud enabled on your iPhone and your computer, you can turn on iCloud Music Library on both devices. Once it is turned on, any music that you have purchased or added to your library on your iPhone will automatically be available on your computer as well. Another way to do this is through iTunes Match.
With iTunes Match, any music in your library, regardless of where it came from, will be matched with songs in the Apple Music catalog. Songs that are not available in the Apple Music catalog will be uploaded so they can be played back at 256 Kbps AAC quality (unless they were imported at a higher quality). You can then access this music from any of your devices that are signed in with the same Apple ID as long as iTunes Match is turned on.
If neither of these methods work for you or if you prefer to use a wired connection, you can always connect your iPhone to your computer and use iTunes to sync the two devices. This can be done by going into the settings on your iPhone and selecting “Summary” under the “Devices” section. From there, check the “Sync only checked songs and videos” box and click “Apply” in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Now when you open up iTunes on your computer and select “Music” from the left sidebar, all of the songs that are checked off on your iPhone should appear in iTunes.
How to Transfer Itunes Library to Another Computer Windows 10
If you’ve got a new computer, or simply want to move your iTunes library to another location, you can do so relatively easily. Here’s how!
First, open up iTunes and go to Preferences.
Under the General tab, click on the “Advanced” button. Make sure that the “Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library” option is checked. This will ensure that all of your files are in one place when we start moving things around.
Next, go to where your iTunes media folder is located. On a Mac, this is usually under ~/Music/iTunes/. On Windows, it’s usually under My Documents -> My Music -> iTunes -> iTunes Media.
Drag the entire iTunes Media folder onto your external hard drive or USB stick. This may take a while if you have a lot of music, but it’s important that you get everything! Once that’s done, open up iTunes on your new computer (or the computer you’re moving things to).
Go back into Preferences and click on Advanced once again. This time, change the “iTunes Media Folder Location” option to point to the external hard drive or USB stick where you copied over your files earlier. Once you’ve done that, click “OK” and then quit out of Preferences.
Now comes the fun part: importing all of your music into iTunes! To do this, simply open up iTunes and drag all of the folders from your external hard drive or USB stick into the main window. Alternatively, you can go into File -> Add Folder to Library… and select all of the folders that way.
Whichever method you prefer is fine! Your music should now start appearing in iTunes! If not, try restarting the program and see if that fixes anything. If nothings seems to be working still,…
