There are a number of ways to transfer music on iTunes between two computers. You can use the built-in sharing features of iTunes, or you can use third-party software to copy your music files directly from one computer to another. In this article, we’ll show you how to use both methods to transfer music on iTunes between two computers.
Connect both computers to the same network
In order to transfer music on iTunes between two computers, both computers must be connected to the same network. To do this, you can connect both computers to the same router using Ethernet cables, or you can connect both computers to the same Wi-Fi network. Once both computers are connected to the same network, you can proceed with transferring music on iTunes between the two computers.
Download and install iTunes on both computers
If you have a PC, you can use Apple’s iCloud to move your music between computers. If you have a Mac, you can use the Home Sharing feature in iTunes to share your music between computers on the same home network.
You can also transfer music from one computer to another by manually copying your iTunes library files between computers. This process is more complicated, but it doesn’t require that both computers be on the same home network.
Configure iTunes on both computers
You can configure iTunes on both computers to share music between them. You’ll need to authorize each computer with your Apple ID and make sure you have an active Internet connection. Once you’ve authorized both computers, you can use either one to add, delete, or manage music.
Transfer music from one computer to the other
There are a few different ways to transfer music from one computer to another. The most common method is to use iTunes. This can be done by connecting both computers to the same WiFi network and then using AirDrop to share the music files. Another method is to use an external hard drive or USB flash drive.
Import music into iTunes on the destination computer
You can import music into iTunes on the destination computer from your primary computer in two ways: by copying files from the iTunes folder on your primary computer to the iTunes folder on the destination computer, or by exporting and importing your library.
Create a new iTunes library on the destination computer
If you want to transfer music from one iTunes library to another, you can do so by creating a new iTunes library on the destination computer. This will allow you to choose which songs you want to transfer, and will also ensure that any playlists or other settings from your original iTunes library are not overwritten. To create a new iTunes library on a Windows PC:
1. Click the Start menu and type “iTunes” into the search box.
2. Right-click on the iTunes shortcut and select “Run as Administrator.”
3. When iTunes opens, go to the “File” menu and select “New > iTunes Library.”
4. A new window will open asking you to choose a location for the new library; simply select the location of your choice and click “Save.”
5. Your new iTunes library will now be created; you can close iTunes and proceed with transferring your music files.
Export music from the source computer
Before you can move your iTunes library, you’ll need to export its contents. To do so, open iTunes and go to File > Library > Export Library…. A file with an .xml extension will be created on your desktop.
Copy the exported music files to the destination computer
1. On the source computer, open iTunes and select the Library tab.
2. Select Export Library from the File menu.
3. Choose a location to save the file and click Save.
4. On the destination computer, open iTunes and select the Library tab.
5. Select Import Library from the File menu.
6. Locate the exported file on the destination computer and click Open.
In conclusion, there are a few different ways that you can transfer music on iTunes between two computers. You can use iTunes Match, iCloud Music Library, or you can use a third-party service like iMyFone TunesMate. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, so choose the one that is best for your needs.
