    has anyone backed up their iTunes library?? is it possibly to use that back up to upload all your music from one computer to another?

    Also how many discs would it take to do it...

    ^ [​IMG] thats pretty much what i was wondering
    I was hoping somehow by using iTunes back up program it would format all the music to fit onto one disk [​IMG]

    but naw its not for backing up, i just got a new laptop and wanted to transfer the music over

    if youre on Windows, there is a folder called "iTunes" in your Music folder.. make sure you move that along with all of your other mp3s (this savesyour playlists, play-count, album covers, etc to your new PC).
