Hi,
Just bought my wife a mac and want to transfer her music files from the PC to the Mac. The PC does NOT have itunes running anymore. Let's just say the itunes, at least on the PC, does some rather dumb things. Anyhow, itunes on the PC is dead. Playlists and such are all gone. All I want to do is transfer the files. Some are 128kb purchased from itunes. Some are WAV files ripped from CDs. I don't want itunes to convert the files in any way whatsoever. I just want to copy them into an appropriate folder and have itunes find them.
What would happen is I copied all the sub-folders and files from her "iTunes Music" folder into the "iTunes Media" folder on the mac?
Any advice for a weary soul who is trying ever so hard to keep and open mind about the virtues of itunes?
Thanks!

That worked!..... Well, at least so far. I was able to copy all the music files over. However, I'm not able to delete the "Not Added" folder that was created in "Automatically Add to iTunes" when I unsuccessfully tried to copy before. It contains several folders named by the date and time. In those folders are some album art jpegs and system.ini files. When I try to delete anything I just hear the classic mac "beep", but no other info is provided.
Any idea how I might delete these? I don't want start itunes if it's going to automatically load garbage into the library.
Thanks!!!!
