Itunes transfer to new PC

I'm not that tekkie so maybe some of this won't add up but here goes ....

I have on my PC what I believe is a non Apple itunes library. It looks the same as theirs but was a D/L from another site. It's offline and is accessible on my desktop only so there is no back up (!!) except from the master list of D/L's within the computer.

It works fine, no issues but I now want to transfer it to another PC?

Help and suggestions welcome please as I do not want to risk losing the music.

Thanks.

I would buy a portable hard drive (or USB stick), copy it on to that, then copy it onto the new machine. You can keep using the spare drive to regularly back up the library.

Or depending on the size of the library, you could upload it to Google drive and download it to the new machine from there.

Cheers.

With an external hard drive, can I select what I want to move across to it and ignore the rest or would it take everything?

You can do the whole lot or select just what you want to copy and paste over.

Great.

I only want to move the music. Don't need all the photos, files, videos etc.

If you want to use the same iTunes configuration it might be best to move everything over and remove what you don’t need on the new machine rather than select what you need and alter the file structure.

If you do that iTunes might not be able to find the files in the places it expects them to be.

Plenty of help online for the sake of a quick google.
