Can I copy an iTunes Library from another Mac?
Just to be clear I am interested just in Music / Music Playlists - mostly ripped CDs or mp3 files with a couple of on-line purchases.
My wife ripped our joint CD collection to her Mac many years ago. We share an Apple ID for purchases.
When I bought an iPod, Rather than repeat the very time consuming task, I copied to my Windows XP machine, although I had to modify many of the names, as they were too long.
Since then I acquired a Mac, and this still has the old iTunes Library, but I would like to tidy it up and synchronise the two.
My plan would be to delete my ~/Music/iTunes and replace with a copy, although I am open to suggestions. This is the process I used initially in 2011 to copy to Windows. (I may need to copy ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes.plist)
My /Music/iTunes is currently ~22GB
I do not play music on my Mac, it is used solely to synchronise to my iPhone, iPad etc.
