Here is an article on it.

When I switched I just burnt mine to 5 DVD's (I needed to back it up anyway) but, I know I don't have a lot of music compared to most people out there.

--=||17" MacBook Pro 2.6, 4GB, 200 GB, Hi-Res Glossy -=- 30" Display -=- 80 GB Ipod Classic -=- 2 TB External Storage -=- Canon Digital Rebel Xti -=- Canon HG10 High Def Cam -=- Tons of tech books to make it all work. ||=--

If its only 20 songs then do you have a USB minidrive?

Just copy the files onto the drive, insert the drive into your mac and copy them off into the Mac's iTunes

What I did for this was to simply take the ENTIRE iTunes folder hierarchy from my PC and copy it to an external USB2.0 drive (as louishen says, in your case, a USB memory stick might be big enough). Then I plugged the external drive into my Mac and replaced the ENTIRE iTunes folder hierarchy on the Mac with the one I had copied from my PC. Then I started iTunes, it said "importing" or something like that, and after about a minute, it was all done and dandy. So, you may wish to try this as one approach.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
