Consolidating music files in itunes
Connect your Android phone to your computer using the USB cable.If an autorun box appears, choose open folder to view files.Once you've transferred a copy of your i Tunes library onto an external hard drive, you will need to set a new path for the i Tunes app by redirecting it to search the external hard drive for content, rather than your local drive.Note: Until you delete the i Tunes file on your local hard drive, you can switch which libraries i Tunes uses by launching the app and holding down the Option key at the same time.If you've already consolidated your music (as described in the first section of this article) you'll see a Music folder containing the i Tunes Media folder.To select the entire folder, click the box to the left to select all.If you'd like to transfer all of your music, tick the box at the top of the list to highlight all of the songs.
Consolidating your media won't delete it from your computer, it will place a copy into the i Tunes Media folder. This will display any music files that have already been discovered by Kies.Otherwise, click on the Start menu again and choose Computer.Your phone should be visible in the main window under Devices, or on the left-hand side under Computer.Even if you think your library has all your information consolidated already, it can't hurt to do a manual check before moving any data.This process could take upwards of an hour or two, depending on how much data stored in your i Tunes library.
You can also transfer your entire i Tunes library from one computer to another if you are migrating to a new Mac.
