CopyTrans offers easier way to transfer iTunes libraries

updated 02:35 am EST, Tue December 21, 2010

Keep libraries intact while changing platforms

CopyTrans, a PC software company from Switzerland, has unveiled a cross-platform solution to help one of the most common problems facing "switchers" and others who want to move their entire iTunes libraries from a Windows PC to a Mac: how can I do this while preserving aspects like play counts, album artwork, rankings and more? While it can be done manually, CopyTrans TuneSwift can ease the transfer process, as well as restore iTunes libraries.

The program preserves music, video, app purchases, audiobooks, iOS device backups and podcasts -- as well as the "extra" information people who have invested time in creating their library prize, like artwork, playlists and ratings. This also allows iOS device owners to keep their device linked to the original library, even as it has been moved to a new machine.

A user will download the Windows version of the program and transfer their iTunes library to an external drive, then connect that drive to the Mac and use the Mac version, presently in beta, to "restore" it to iTunes on the Mac.

CopyTrans Tuneswift is being made available free until March 15th. The Mac version can be downloaded here and registered free for MacNN readers using the code TUNESWIFT-MACNN. The Windows version is available here and can also be registered free using the same code.
