All of my files (mostly .mp3s, photos, and .wavs) and already moved over to the Mac, but I dont know how to move my iTunes playlists from my PC and I dont want to have to re-create them from scratch. I Googled a couple of non-free programs that claim to allow you to move playlists, pics, games, etc directly from your iPod to Mac, but I havent tried them yet. Is there an option within iTunes that allows you to move your playlist info? I found "Import/Export Playlists" options, but I cant seem to get them to work right. Thanks in advance.

Edit: And I would very much recommend TextWrangler (free) when it comes to editing the XML file. (edited by Leroy on 12.1.09 1444)

As the article says, this is not a foolproof process, but it's not too bad. If you have trouble with the procedure, I'm sure someone could convert the Library.xml file if you tell them where the files are located on your Mac.

C) Besides, this will give me a chance to weed out all the dumb playlists I never listened to anyway (I have +50 overall). D) Thanks for your help, everybody!
