Picture of How to Transfer Large Amounts of Music Using ITunes

This is a technique that I use when giving someone a large amount of music for their library or when I am backing up my library. Essentially you transfer just the files, keeping the size of the files down.

~~IF YOU WANT TO PLAY MUSIC IN A CD PLAYER THIS INSTRUCTABLE IS NOT FOR YOU, THE DISC(S) BURNT IN THIS TUTORIAL WILL NOT BE PLAYABLE IN A CD PLAYER~~

--- I use this technique only for backup of my music library. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY TROUBLE THAT YOU GET IN FOR UNSING THIS TECHNIQUE AGAINST THE LAW. Thank you and that is all ---
