Ok, here's the deal. I have 26,000 songs that I've stored in iTunes. All of these were imported directly from my private collection of CD's, no iTunes store stuff. I want to transfer the entire collection to iTunes on a PC I have with a large hard drive to free up space on my powermac. What's the best way to do this?

If you're using iTunes on your PC as well just copy your entire "iTunes" folder on your Mac and transfer it over to your PC under the My Music folder in My Documents (just overwrite the old iTunes folder if there is one). Once you've done that you're finished and you can open up iTunes and start listening to your music. I'm not 100% positive, but I'm pretty sure that will also maintain all of your playlists as well.
