My daughters PC is dying and she wants to know if there's a way to say all her iTunes music. She has a laptop in which to put everything until she can get a new PC but doesn't know how to go about getting them off the PC to the laptop. Has anyone does this before and how do you do it?

depends on where the itunes folder is, here its in the my documents folder - D:\_Private\My Music\iTunes - save all the files and folders in there, make sure you have show hidden files and folders on

should do the trick

Carpo is correct: Backup the iTunes music folder. Once you have a new computer you simply copy the iTunes folder back and you will have to authorize that computer before you are able to play the tunes again. Once you authorize the new computer you will be all set.

Ok, I was able to save her iTunes folder but all the songs she purchased it says they can't play on this PC, how do I save or move those songs to this laptop?

You need to authorize the new computer before playing. I forget which menu has the option but I know it's there.

So, if someone buys something from itunes, itunes doesn't keep track and allow you to download the song again if something happens to the storage device?

???

Be careful, I believe you are only allowed to switch computer three? times before you are not allowed to do it anymore.
