Migration Assistant (Mac only)
On a Mac, the easiest way to transfer your iTunes library to a new machine is to use the Migration Assistant tool. This can be used while you’re setting up the new computer, or after it’s already done. The Migration Assistant tool is used to move data, settings, and other files from your old computer to your new one. Though it isn’t 100% perfect, it moves most files very well and will save you a lot of time.
The Mac OS Setup Assistant will offer you this option as you set up your new computer. If you don’t choose it, you can find the Migration Assistant in your Applications folder, inside the Utilities folder.
To do this, you’ll need a FireWire cable to connect the two computers. Once you’ve done that, restart the old computer and hold down the “T” button. You’ll see it restart and display an orange FireWire icon on the screen. Once you see this, run the Migration Assistant tool, and follow the onscreen instructions.
