I'll be building a new system soon, but I would like to know how to safely transfer specific data from my old hard drive to my new one, as I'm giving this system away.

I'm specifically interested in my music and my iTunes. I have over 500 downloaded songs, and would truly rather not have to re-download all of it.

Can I possibly move all my music, which is a separate folder from iTunes music folder, onto my new hardrive, and have it all arranged exactly as it is on this hard drive?

All solutions would be appreciated.

Backup the files onto cd or onto an external hard drive or even another HD and save it when you format the new HD.
yo.

I BELIEVE

Can I back it up onto the new hard drive after it is formatted? Like directly, and how would I do that?

metal claw is right, just add the second harddrive as a slave and you can just drag files from one to the other, should solve your porn moving troubles

Thanks bro, but if its not too much, could you lay the steps out for me?

I don't want to screw it up and lose my music, so how would i transfer the iTunes program, all its info, and my songs (Ares Program, the music is in the My Shared Folder)

Thanks man

you wont be able to transfer something thats installed so easily, i'm not sure how itunes works either, they are not mp3's? try to install itunes on the new hard drive and drag the itune files (music ones) into the same foler on your new harddrive (eg. prgram files, itunes, music). to set the old hardrive as a slave read the front of the harddrive and change the jumper. its normally in the middle of the power and data cable (master means it is the main primary harddrive of the pc i.e. windows runs from here)

Ok,

Ignore everyone else - this isn't hard. I have done it.

Put old drive in new computer

Drag all music from old to new - where ever you like. I suggest a folder called Music might assist you in recalling where it is.

Install iTunes on new computer. DOn't try and somehow move installation across - it won't work.

In settings tell iTunes where your library of music is now. In one of the menus you can "Authorise this computer", put in your iTunes account details and you will be able to play your purchased music.

Easy. Honestly.
