Ask Mac Questions and Get Answers from Experts ASAP
Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.I'm sorry about the issue. Unfortunately, applications/programs cannot be transfered (only files/data, such as documents, pictures, library/music files, etc., can be transferred), but it's easy to reinstall applications. For example, you can download and install the iTunes application at the website below:http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/If you need any other application, please let me know. Thank you
Why would I need to download itunes? I already have it on both computers. What about "Transfer Purchases" or "Home Sharing?"
No apologies necessary. My fault. Yes, I transferred my Itunes library to a flash drive, and then to my desktop.
Please let me know if you are stuck at any step. Thank you
So, you're talking about my flash drive then? I've already transferred the itunes library from the flash drive to the laptop. So that I understand you correctly, you want me to re-insert the flash drive, and follow the above steps?
Ok, here's we are are: After transferring my desktop's itunes library to my laptop, via a usb flash drive, I opened itunes and worked with it to ensure all was kosher. I resumed, per your instructions, to step four. I received no alert boxes, nor could I find, under the itunes' finder menu, an option entitled "Transfer Purchases..." You are a Mac advisor, right? Your are referring to things that seemingly don't exist with my software.
Yes. Sorry, the transfer purchases option is for transferring from ipod or ipad or iphone etc. So you've transferred and followed the steps for external drive but it does not work. I'm sorry. Let me open the issue to other experts. Thank you.
Not really having a problem; I just need advice on transferring my application purchases from my desktop to my laptop. Do you have access to my earlier dialogue?
I would like to transfer my Itunes store app purchases from my desktop to my laptop.
The itunes folder that resided in my "pictures" location.
