Hi all,
I'm new here & I'm hoping that someone can help me. I recently downloaded my itunes files to a usb drive, or I thought I did. I opened itunes, clicked on file & saw "export to", so I clicked on that & thought that the files had been transferred. Now when I plug in the usb drive into my laptop, I see itunes folders but my computer won't read them yet when I plug the usb drive into my old computer, everything works fine.

Even when I downloaded Itunes on my laptop & tried to "import " them, that didnt work either. I have read so much & am very confused. I am afraid that I have lost my entire library! I read somewhere that you need to compress or consolidate the foles & create a new folder. I did that as well but it still wont call up on my laptop.

I really need some help.

Thx

Are you trying to move everything over to a new computer? Is the music still on the old computer? If it is, you can navigate to My Documents, My Music and copy the entire iTunes folder to the flash drive. Provided you don't manually manage all your media, this will copy everything including your preferences and library file.

Then it's just a matter of installing iTunes on the new computer. Once you do that, you'll want to open iTunes one time and close it once it loads. Then copy your iTunes library and media from the flash drive to the My Documents, My Music folder, replacing the one created by iTunes.

Then open iTunes and everything will be the same as it was on the old computer.

Thanks for the information. If I do this, will there be enough memory on the usb drive to download it again?
