I HAVE been trying to get answers for days from APPLE COMMUNITY SUPPORT. I have a lot of music that I need to either copy on to a flash drive from my windows pc or else I need to be able to get these songs that I paid a lot of money for but can't do anything with.



I have file sharing on my Mac but the only thing that shows up are the albums I copied from disk.



I have to send my computer in tomorrow for repair (my windows laptop) If I can't get them on a flash drive and can't them on my Mac then APPLE ripped me off bigtime. ACTUALLY I was supposed to send my laptop in over a week ago but I have been spending all this time trying to copy my itunes.

i copied my pictures onto the flash drive with no problem its just stupid itunes that is screwed up. i don't even know what extension the itunes is supposed to have for the music. There's all kinds of "parts" to the music, I HATE ITUNES its too friggin complicated.

Plus you can't do certain things with it without paying them THIRTY CENTS A SELECTION EXTRA

which is a little like buying the car but they refuse to turn the keys over till i PAY THEM AGAIN.

HOW DO I DO THAT?



I have copied them on my Windows7 laptop to a flash drive. When I look at the flash drive while I'm on the laptop it all looks to be there but then when I get on my MAC with Snow Leopard the only thing that shows are the selections that I added myself from my own cds.



This is making me crazy because I need to get these backed up so I can send my computer in and in case they delete whats on my hard drive i do not want to lose any of my i-tunes and I already lost some last summer when someone stole my computers.



I was supposed to mail my laptop in a week ago but still trying to do the itunes copy so I can transfer to my MAC.

??????








When I open it up it has stuff like



It has 4 folders: Music, Videos, My DropBox, Pictures

and a file called purchased.txt,

a file called desktop.ini with exec on the icon

and a file called Itunes Library with exec on the icon



A folder that says Music and when I open that there is another file labeled Music and then A folder that says Itunes and also in that is a Folder that says Playlists



Inside the 1st Music folder is another music folder and inside that is a folder called Itunes and one called playlists



and a file called desktop.ini with exec on the icon



when I open the Itunes file it shows a folder called album artwork, a file call itunes itunes library.itl with exec on the icon



a file with itunes genius.itdb and exec on icon



and a file with itunes library extra.itdb



if I click on the itunes library.itl then it opens up to my copied selections that I got off cds.



if I click on the other two .itdb files it does nothing



inside the album artwork are two files : download, and cache and you can click on those and get files with number like 03, 15



NEVER THE ITUNES LIBRARY

Is there a way to copy just one selection to the flash drive?

Well I guess that won't work because i already have it on a flash drive and the computer is gone in the mail shipped off for repair so I gotta figure out how to get it onto my iMac.

Itunes is unnecessarily complicated imo.

thanks for the tip though, maybe it will come in handy some other time.
