Okay I am moving from my house to Kansas soon and I need you guys to help me on a question:

I need to find a way to move my iTunes library from this computer to my dad's. I can't link them up or whatever and I have no CDs or floppys, so are their any sites that can hold them for me I know emailing them won't work I have too many mp3 files. Any solutions would be great, espescially if they work because I don't wanna lose my music.

I bought redchair software because I figured the $25 was worth being able to back up all of my music. It's called anapod explorer, and works very well.

Another one is sharepod, which is free, but it stopped working for me when I really needed it.

Another one is yamipod, which never worked for me, but others say it is great.

All being software for transferring music from your ipod to your computer.

The other option is of course a separate hard drive.

Well guys I ahve very little money and even less time, no iPod or jump drives or know what a thumb drive is or anything. I was just hoping for some sort of software or place to store them and then get them from my dads computer. I also use limewire by the way.

Any solution would be great!

Not sure,but wouldn't you be able to use Micro$ofts Files And Settings Transfer option to move the files to your Dads computer?
Do a trial with one small file,and report back with the results.
Good Luck!

You have too much music to fit in your ipod?
Take a look at these
Copying music between authorized computers with iTunes for Windows
Or
iTunes: Moving your iTunes Music folder
all other info on moving
Backing Up Your Library
Good luck with this and moving

Anyone know any way to do this without having my dads computer on site or a cd or floppy? Sorry for making this hard but I am going there in a week and I am not sure if I could find a blank CD or floppy by then.

You shouldn't have a problem finding CD's.They sell them nearly everywhere now...even the Dollar Store!And they are super cheap.
Just how important is this Music Library to you?Sounds like you put alot of time into it,so is worth preserving.

How much do you have? I found This site that will store 1 gig for free. There might be more out there. Does that help?
