Sorry guys, might sound like a silly question but I need to ask. My original 160G HD on my MacBook Unibody [before they renamed the first ones PRO] now had 185mb left. Next month I am having the ram increased from 2g to 8g and HD replaced with a 500 gig one. I will be getting the guys in the Apple store to copy my current HD contents onto the new one. Here is the question, with my iTunes account, as I had moved songs from 3 or 4 previous windows laptops onto the current one, if I remember, Apple only allows you to move the songs onto 5 different machines, after that they wont work right? So will I end up losing all my music do you think?

Note: I moved your thread from our "off topic" forum into one that deals specifically with Mac applications. Please keep in mind that posting in the right forum helps you to get more relevant and timely responses.

Thanks!

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

You are not changing/moving computer, just the hard drive so it won't make a difference.

Thanks, I was a bit worried about losing all my music as I paid for it all through iTunes and there is a lot! LOL
