How come I cannot get my iTunes music off my old hard drive?

by on May 23, 2010

Q: My old computer died but the hard drive was still healthy. I have converted the internal hard drive into an external hard drive. Now I want to recover my iTunes music library off the old computer and put it on my new laptop. I have tried all the ways suggested by Apple and “how to’s” nothing is working. The files don’t want to share. Is there a way to trick iTunes and get around this?

    I’m guessing you’ve reinstalled iTunes on the new harddive. Have you tried just copying your music over from the Music folder on the old hard drive to the Music folder in the new hard drive?
