Hi All,

I'm changing my PC in the next day or two and rather than having to reload manually all my Podcasts is there a configuration file that can be copied to the new PC with this info??

There is a directory "D:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\" that has some files that look like preference files in them. Are these the files to copy??

Thanx in advance.

I have never done it myself but you might want to have a look on Apple's website under iPod FAQs.

Open iTunes, go to file, Back up to CD, and you can burn your library to a DVD or CD using that. It creates an exact clone of your old iTunes on your new computer.

you need to find the following file in the itunes directory in c: drive or where ever your main iTunes directory sits.;


iTunes Music Library.xml

copy only that file for the new computer.

When thats done open iTunes, click on file//import find the .xml file and click open.
