Can anyone help me?
Any suggestions on how I can simply transfer music stored in my iTunes library on my PC to my laptop. The music has not been purchased from iTunes.
I've looked at iTunes help section but is there not another simplier way?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe burn the music stored in your PC onto a re-writable disc and then transfer it onto your laptop that way?

Yeah, the files are stored in your PC, just use some medium, pen drive or whatever and transfer.

Thanks Meerkat and Alonzo.

I'm not a techie, so my comments may sound basic to all you tech people but here goes:

I've originally got my music off Limewire which I then downloaded onto iTunes. I have downloaded the music off iTunes via an external drive. On my new laptop I downloaded iTunes. I thought that when I attached my external drive into my laptop it would transfer the music onto the iTunes site I had downloaded bit it doesn't.
How can I get it onto the music onto the iTunes site I downloaded?

You have a folder that contains all the files that are mp3's you need to transfer this folder onto your laptop, then go into itunes, go to the file menu and select add folder and then select the folder which has the mp3s in.
