Forum Question: Transfer Files to New iMac

I have a Mac Mini and I am looking at buying the new 27″ IMac. I wanted to know if I can transfer ALL the Movies, Podcast, and Music I purchased from the iTunes store over to the new iMac and be able to view and listen to it.

    Of course. You can use Migration Assistant to do it, or restore from your Time Machine backup. Or do it manually from a network or external drive. Once you set up the new machine, you simply “authorize” that copy of iTunes with your iTunes account ID. Then it can play any DRM-protected music or video you bought on iTunes and copied over (Just remember to de-authorize your old Mac too if you plan on getting rid of it).

    We tried all of this and it tells us that the account are allready in use….?
    And we cant find the files transfered via the Migration Assistant on the receving imac?
