I'm happy to report:

Transferring the i-Tunes music files via drag-drop right into the external hard drive...WORKED.

I was able to send a couple of Alicia Keyes albums (one was downloaded from my music CD; the other was an i-Tunes electronic purchase) to the thumb drive; then right on into the old XP computer; then right into the new i-Tunes!

I'm listening to Alicia (on the XP laptop) as I'm typing these words from my VISTA laptop.

All's well that ends well.

Thanks for all of your help, EVERYONE!

Yay!!! That does seem like the best option :o) I've been wanting an excuse for an external hard drive for a while now and I think my 13gb of music is the perfect excuse!

I have the Maxtor One-Touch 4Plus 500GB. (and a 250GB for the XP laptop) The Maxtor One-Touch is very easy to use. Just push the button...VOILA, done! It backs up in seconds. Especially if you "push the button" daily, or more! I love pushing the button. Power.

That is awesome. I know when I back up my regular files, it says so many CD's, less blank DVD's or even less Blu Ray's. I have the DVD's and it is easier than all of those CD's.

kind of a side-note, but i-tune related
I download audio books all the time for my i-pod and then I listen to them while I knit. I'm a huge mystery fan! You can get free audiobooks at:
Librivox
Project Gutenberg
Books Should Be Free

I probably should have listed this under "obsessions" cuz I am rather obsessed with listening to, or reading mystery stories! Heh heh!
