This is exactly what I just did with my new computer. It's pretty easy - just moving the songs to the shared folder, and then dragging them onto your newer comp's music folder (or where ever you want them)

First, make sure all your songs are in the 'Shared Documents' folder. (My computer -> Shared Documents)
If they aren't just drag them there

Then, if you go to your other computer, go to 'My Network Places'. It should be in your Start menu under 'My Computer'. If it isn't, you can also find it by going to 'My Computer'. On the left side of the 'My Computer' window, you should see 'Other Places'. 'My Network Places' should be listed in there. Click on that, and then you should be able to click on the other computer there, and it should lead you to where you put the songs. From there, you can drag them to your comp.

Once they're transferring, it could take a while, but at least you don't have to burn a million CD's :whistling:

Hopefully I explained that well.. I know you're not stupid with comps, I just dragged it out and made it too wordy and simple, lol...
