Hi All;

I just got a new mac. I tried the transfer bit with a firewire cable at startup from my old mac but it failed and miserabely trashed my new box so I had to re-insall the OS.

I've now booted up the old mac while holding down the T' key and I'm accessing it as an external drive.

I went into iTunes and did an import into library and navigated to the <user-Home>/Music/iTunes folder on the old mac. It worked but none of m smart folders came along with it - this could take weeks to re setup, anyone know how I can pull across my old smart folders.

btw: I have the same question for my mac mail.

Thanks in advance
QUOTE Thanks
