Q: Is there a way that I can transfer songs from my iTunes on Mac OS 9.2 to my iTunes on Mac OS X 10.1.5? Both OSes are on the same computer.

- Richie D

A: Just add the songs from the older iTunes library to the new library. In the Mac OS X version of iTunes, select File > Add to Library, and navigate to your Mac OS 9.2 iTunes Music folder. Click Choose, and iTunes adds all your music. This adds all the songs to the new library, but it won’t carry over play counts or playlists.
