You've got a new PC or Mac and wish to transfer your iTunes library to the new computer without losing songs, apps or any other kind of data?

Basically there are four ways to transfer your entire iTunes library from one computer to another:

* Use iTunes transfer software to move the entire iTunes library
* Transfer iTunes manually to a new PC
* Backup iTunes on CDs/DVDs to restore it on the new PC
* Use your iPod as temporary storage device to move iTunes

Step 1: Using Software to move the iTunes library

By the end of 2010 a program called TuneSwift has been published. This software allows you to transfer the entire iTunes library including apps, music, videos, books, playlists, tags, iPhone backups and many more.

It is easy to use and enables you to backup, transfer and restore the iTunes library to a new PC or Mac. You can load the software from http://www.copytrans.net/copytranstuneswift.php .

To install the program just follow the on screen instructions. After the installation open TuneSwift.

You’ll now find three buttons/options:

1 Transfer 2 Backup and 3 Restore iTunes

1) To move your iTunes library to a new computer hit the “Transfer” button.
2) Now you can decide whether you want to copy iTunes to a PC or a Mac.
3) When you made your choice you’ll find a window to select the external hard drive or flash drive where you want to temporarily store the iTunes library. Give a name to the iTunes transfer archive and confirm.
4) Now click “Start Transfer”.
5) After the successful transfer of the iTunes library to the external hard drive, eject the drive and connect it to the new PC.
6) Install TuneSwift on the new PC and choose “Restore”.
7) Select the “Transfer File” from the external drive. Normally this file ends with “*.tsw” and hit the “Start Restore” button.
8) After the successful restore of your iTunes library, TuneSwift will notify you.
9) Close TuneSwift and open iTunes. You’ll find your complete iTunes library on your new computer.

Pro : TuneSwift is an easy to use app that transfers the entire iTunes library including the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch backups. It also allows you to keep backups of your library on external drives.
Contra : Mac users can only use the restore function of TuneSwift.

<p>The tutorial isn't complete and hard to figure it out what it tries to express. Here is a much more simple tutorial on how to transfer itunes library from one PC to another: <a href="http://www.imoresoft.com/tunesgo.html#part3" rel="nofollow">http://www.imoresoft.com/tunesgo.html#part3</a></p>
<p>Why not use Tunesgo? I used it to move all iTunes library from my computer to another new computer without any data loss. </p><p>It can record music from Pandora, Spotify and other music streaming service.

Just make it with <a href="http://transferphone.com/itunes-transfer" rel="nofollow">iTunes Transfer</a>
<p>Ready to switch to a new computer? No problem: whether you are moving from Windows 7 to Windows 8 or from PC to Mac, use Androidphonesoft to <a href="http://www.androidphonesoft.com/resources/how-to-transfer-music-from-iphone-to-android.html" rel="nofollow">transfer iPhone music </a>to android seamlessly.</p><p>Have used in the past and have been happy that I had a backup when my system crashed, itunes would not work and if I had not had this backup, years of music would have been lost.</p>
<p>Also, if you don't want to do it via iTunes, you may transfer to use <a href="http://transferphone.com/ios-transfer" rel="nofollow">iOS Transfer</a> instead.</p><p>It's designed to transfer iTunes library between different devices.</p>
<p>You can also use a PC transfer tool like Zinstall to do this. It will transfer iTunes with the library intact, and all of your other programs and files. </p><p>They actually have a very nice tutorial here, even has a video:<br><a href="http://www.zinstall.com/how-to/how-to-transfer-programs-and-files-to-new-computer" rel="nofollow">How to transfer programs and files to new PC</a></p>
<p>Mostly, I transfer them with the professional <strong><a href="http://transferphone.com/ios-transfer" rel="nofollow">iTunes Transfer</a></strong>.</p>
<p>iTunes is really a good method to transfer data from pc to iPhone. You can add some files to iTunes from &quot;Files&quot;&gt;&quot;add to iTunes library&quot; and then, you can transfer it to iOS devices,like iPod, iPhone and iPad, which is still handled with <a href="http://www.recovery-ipad.com/iphone-transfer.html" rel="nofollow">iPhone Transfer</a>.</p>

<p>I think you may not achieve the transfer without a third party tool. we know that iTunes is a one-way tool which can not help to <a href="http://www.fonepaw.com/tutorials/transfer-ipod-music-to-pc.html" rel="nofollow">transfer songs from iPod to PC</a>. Why not try <strong>FonePaw iOS Transfer</strong>? it can help you transfer flies and backup them to your PC.</p>
<p>How to Transfer data from iPhone to Mac <br>/PC ? This is a common situation that many iPhone users would face. Some may <br>want to transfer his data from iPhone to computer for backup.

<p>By default iTunes won't be set to <br>synchronise your music with the iPhone. In iTunes select the iPhone via the <br>menu on the left (if it isn't already) and then click the Music tab at the top <br>of the main window. Then set it to synchronise (either all or just the folders <br>you choose). Then when you click Sync it should copy the music across.</p><p><a href="http://www.mobikin.com/idevice/transfer-copy-music-from-iphone-to-computer.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.mobikin.com/idevice/transfer-copy-music-from-iphone-to-computer.html</a></p>
