ITunes transfer between laptops

I've been running a computer dell laptop with vista home premium on it 6 years and now I have a new dell lap top running windows 8.

My ITunes on the old lap top has more 7 000 songs, videos and audio books on it and I want to transfer all over the new laptop.  I have new ITunes loaded on the new laptop and can access 'cloud', but I want that all my files on the new circuit.  How can I do?

Thanks in advance


See the instructions about backing up your iTunes library on the old Dell laptop to a hard drive external:

An external hard drive will be necessary for this exercise.

Once the backup is complete, simply do the reverse by restoring the iTunes folder in the music folder where iTunes media is normally maintained in the file Explorer > music

Launch of iTunes and your library must be restored.

  • Downloading movies iTunes transfer between computers

    I downloaded a movie from iTunes on my Macbook Pro and want to transfer this file on my Mac Mini, which is connected to the TV. I tried to copy the file, but when I opened the file m4v on Mac Mini video open like a video at home instead of a movie. I was able to change the file type in the settings, but still the video does not appear as a purchase of iTunes with a link to iTunes Extras and other metadata.

    I know that technically I could download the movie directly from the internet to the Mac Mini, but given that I have a quota of strict data where I live (and the internet is not very fast), I would rather avoid this option if possible. I wouldn't be able to just copy the file rather than download it again on a new device?

    I would appreciate any advice.

    P.S. Something I may have stumbled, but have not yet tried: loading film on an iPad since the MacBook Pro and then by downloading it from the iPad to the Mac Mini via iTunes. Sounds ridiculous, but may not be too much work, so I'll probably give it a try.

    P.P.S. I use iTunes version

  • IPad will not sync with iTunes on my laptop. Synchronization in iPpod settings will not work

    MY iPad will not sync with iTunes on my laptop, the sync on my iPad button will not work. I have the latest updates on both.

    I guess you mean that the sync button in iTunes, not on the iPad, will not work. If you are sure you have the latest version of iTunes and iOS (your profile shows 8.1) try quitting iTunes on the computer, restart the computer and force restart your iPad

    No data is lost during this procedure. Hold on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

    You don't say anything on your computer.  I don't even know if it's a Mac or a PC. This may apply to you:

    iOS9 on a mobile device requires iTunes 12.3 or higher, which in turn requires a computer running OSX 10.8.5 or higher.  Update of the system only checks the updates for the current version of the system you run, but that itself can be updated.  It may or may not be possible to upgrade your computer to the system requirements. Find your computer on the web site of model and near the bottom of the specification of the system section, he will tell what versions of the operating system, it is able to run. If you can not run a newer system, you will not be able to sync this phone to your current computer. If she can run 10.8.5 or higher, you can either buy a download for Apple OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion code online, or you can try to install the free El Capitan OSX 10.11.  El Capitan can run slower on older machines and require the additional purchase of RAM.  Making a big jump in versions of system is also more likely to affect the old software.

  • making data transfer between two computers


    I developed a labview for data acquisition goal program.  I need to run a part of my program in a computer and some said in another separate computer. for data transfer between these two computers, I decided to use the Protocol of data taking. a computer, collect data and send data to the second computer and second computer will control the setting of data acquisition in the first computer. now I have developed the program but it does not work. I wonder if that is enough to link these two PC by a network cable or something needs to be done. of course, I have some problems with the source definition in the Protocol of data taking. need two labview program in two separate computers.

    Best regards.

    the problem is resolved.

    transfer of data from socket, simply connect two computers with a LAN cable, as I did. The problem is the URL parameter. I got the error as follows:

    ==> in main and remote program, the URL must be the same and the computer name that data socket server is running must be incloded in the two URLS. (my mistake was that I had used two different URLS in the main program and remote). either way, I realized that this isn't neceessary to Server execution data socket in the two computer.but that that send data.

    While downloading Itunes on my laptop right before you start to install, I get a message saying that windows Explorer stops because the prevention of execution of data has stopped installation.  Is there any solution for this?  I'd like to install itunes on my laptop.

    Hi Steve681229,

    Thank you for using the Microsoft Answers forum.  Here's what worked for someone else.  Thanks Kevin

    Hi thrivenformore,

    Please use the forum for Support of Vista,

    You could try to add iTunes to the DEP exception list.  However, this behavior is not normal.  Go to the support forum of Apple for iTunes for Windows, search on DEP.  There should be a thread "How can I turn off DEP for iTunes?" or it Prevet planting iTunes? "which provide troubleshooting steps you might want to try before adding it to the list of exceptions."

    How to add the program to the DEP exception list:

    1. Press Start, right click on computer and select Properties.
    2. in the window that appears, click Advanced (on the left panel) system settings.
    3. in the first box that says Performance, click on the settings button.
    4. in the window that opens, click the Data Execution Prevention tab at the top.
    5. There should be a box of exceptions in the middle of this window. Click the Add button and navigate to the C: drive, then Program Files, then the iTunes folder, and then choose the iTunes exe.
    6. Add the exception, and then click OK in the window of the DEP.

    Hope this helps, Kevin

    Hi Experts,

    I have a situation where I need to set up the transfer between two VPN Tunnels completed in the same box ASA. A VPN Tunnel will incoming traffic and that traffic should be sent to the bottom of the other VPN Tunnel to the ASA. The two VPN Tunnels are from the Internet and speak with the same IP address of the ASA peers.

    Local counterpart: (ASA in question)

    Remote peer:

    Distance from peer IP:

    Can this be achieved? what configurations are needed in the ASA apart cryptographic ACL entries?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Believed that, in this case your config is good, and you can avoid using routes on your asa since it must route based on its default gateway, make sure you have good sheep in place rules and the inter-to interface same-security-interface allowed return you will need.

  • Folios of transfer between accounts


    Almost finished our first kiosk application (we have a Pro account), but have encountered a problem. We created all our different folios in InDesign with an Adobe admin e-mail account, in order to test them locally on devices using content displays. We then have them finalized within the DPS Folio producer and published. During this time we created the Viewer application and downloaded successfully for testing.

    But... by creating the Viewer, we had to create a new account (ID, title), he would not accept e-mail from the Admin as the title ID problem, that is, we have a working application that does not recognize the folios, as they were created with a different ID... So, how can we transfer these slips to a new ID that matched those in the Viewer? If not, is there an easy way to give the ID of administrator the rights necessary to act as a title ID in the Viewer?

    In the contrary case, we will have to rebuild all of the folios in InDesign with the new title ID... and add metadata that is associated with truck loads!

    Y at - it a shortcut, or is it back to the drawing board for us?

    Thank you

    Currently, there is no quick way to transfer between accounts folios. The engineering team working on a solution to be able to transfer between accounts folios in the near future.

    But wait, there is a quick solution to this

    1. Login to your Admin account and share folios you want to transfer the ID of "title" you created above
    2. Connect on InDesign Folio builder as title ID and create a new folio with no article in (remember the name of sheet)
    3. Now connect on your dashboard and 'open' that folio that was shared from Admin ID to your title ID
    4. Now under each article, you see a drop-down list and an option ' copy to '.
    5. Use the "copy" to copy each item one by one in this new empty folio created in step 2
