Blimey is this hard work! I've just bought a new pc and want to transfer my 20GB library of ATRAC files from my old pc. This is proving harder than anticipated... I've tried the backup tool, it said that dvd+RW discs aren't acceptable. Great, I just spent a tenner on them. Now I need to know, what's the best method to do this transfer? The details retrieved from 'properties' of my SonicStage program are: SonicStage : 3.4.01.13062 SonicStage Add-on for Personal Audio Download : 3.4.00.12140 OpenMG Secure Module : 4.4.00.11241 MagicGate Memory Stick Device : 4.4.00.11241 NW-E2, NW-E3, NW-E5 and NW-E8P : 4.4.00.11241 OpenMG CD : 4.4.00.11241 M.S. PRO : 4.4.00.11241 CD Walkman : 4.4.00.11241 Hi-MD : 4.4.00.11241 Music Clip, NW-S4, NW-E7 and NW-E10 : 4.4.00.11241 HDWM : 4.4.00.11241 Net MD : 4.4.00.11241 EMD Plug-in: 188.8.131.52 CD-R Writing Module(Audio CD/ATRAC CD/MP3 CD) : 3.4.00.12140 Px Engine: 184.108.40.2060 (I don't know if the above helps at all) Anyway, are there any other discs I can use - I realise CDRs will be far too small. Can I join my two pcs together somehow? Other than that, I am prepared to buy a cheap external hard drive but need to be sure this transfer is going to work before I do that! I've read horror stories of people not being able to transfer their libraries full stop! How can this be true? People DO change their computers, the fact is I own every single compact disc that I've loaded to my library and none are CDRs and no tracks are downloads. Why shouldn't I be able to move my songs from one pc to another? I have over 500 albums, I sincerely hope I don't have to upload every single one again! That will take me days! So please kind people, can you advise me? Thanks in advance!
