Hey everyone, I just bought my first MBP and I attempted to move my iTunes library over to my mac. However in the midst of things, half of my library got deleted off of my PC and I have ever since been in trouble. I have my library of music on my iPod and I managed to get that onto the mac, but I do not know how to get the playlists from the iPod onto the iTunes. Can someone give me some assistance please, I am desperate to maintain my playlists as I have so much time invested.

Happy holidays all!
QUOTE Thanks

There's a number of good tips and tricks in this article. I'm not sure what the state of your PC is, but thought it might help:

Geek to Live: How to move an iTunes library from a PC to Mac (and back) - Digital Music - Lifehacker

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!

I guess I should also add that when I tried to consolidate my library on my PC, there was an error about long and invalid file names. But I feel the PC is useless now because it does not even have half of the songs. All of the songs are on my mac/ipod now but I still need the playlists
