How do I transfer non-purchased iTunes tracks (just specific tracks) to another computer?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a Mac desktop with a very large iTunes collection.  This is all music that was not purchased from iTunes and is non-protected so I won't be dealing with issues over protection.

My wife has a new Mac laptop and wants to get some tracks from my collection.  It is several hundred or more and I know it would be hard to go through the actual folders on the computer and find all the tracks.  A lot of times the folders and names don't seem to match what's on iTunes so this can be hard to do.  
Is there a way I can simply choose which songs directly within iTunes to copy to her computer?  I'm just looking for an easy way to copy what she wants from my collection to her iTunes collection?
Thanks in advance for your help.

You can drag songs from iTunes into a folder and it will make a copy of all the tracks. Move those over to the other computer, set the iTunes to copy the songs into the iTunes folder on import in preferences > advanced. On import, it will copy the songs into the iTunes folder and the original copied folder can be removed. All the songs should show up the same as they do in the other iTunes with track names etc.

Thanks.  That's exactly what I needed to know
