    Moving iTunes to PC


    I copied over My Music from my old Win 7 comp and loaded it to my Win 10 comp. Then loaded iTunes on Win 10. iTunes won't find the library of music.

    C is my SSD drive and D is my 1TB hdd for storage. So iTunes is showing D:\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media for Media folder location under Preferences. But nothing shows up in iTunes.

    Check iTunes is looking at the right music folder, else delete all music in your iTunes libray within iTunes (not the actual files) and re-import the music tracks.

    So under D drive I show a Music folder.
    In that Music it has an iTunes and a Music folder.

    In this iTunes folder is Album artwork, iTunes, iTunes Media
    In the second Music folder is some music files as well as an iTunes folder.

    In this second iTunes folder is Album artwork, iTunes Media, iTunes Music, Mobile Apps, Previous iTunes Libraries.

    The content in both of those iTunes Media folders looks to be the same.

    Iirc when I did this I installed iTunes then moved the entire iTunes folder to the new PC then opened iTunes & it found everything.
    However mine is/was on the C drive.
    Is there a new iTunes folder created under Music?

    I think I'm going to delete all iTunes from new comp and start fresh. Looks like best move.
    Thanks!
