my problem is not the typical iTunes import/export scenario since all my files are already on an external hard disk. I am planing to buy a new Mac and plugging the disk to the new machine would not be a big deal but I am looking for a way to keep all the "Metadata" like ratings and playlists.
As I already found out the ratings are not saved in the songs and get lost when you move files around and I guess so will the playlists.
So how can I add all my songs the a completely new Mac and still keep the ratings? (Playlists are less important)
