Before I do it my way, I thought I'd check here first to see "how you would do it?"
I have an iMac that serves as my iTunes jukebox/server. It has all of our songs, movies, etc. on it.
On my MacBook Pro I have a very small subset of just my favorite tunes.
There's a particular playlist on the iMac that I want to have on my MacBook Pro. Some of the songs contained in that playlist are on my MacBook Pro and some aren't.
How would you go about copying that playlist and the songs to the other computer without causing duplication?
I'm stunned! No takers on this one?
Usually there is a line of people trying to tell me a better way to do something.
What's up MacGroup?
From the iTunes HELP menu:
Here are ways to archive or use playlists on another computer:
To archive a single playlist or use it in iTunes on another computer, select the playlist (below Playlists), choose File > Export, and then choose XML from the Format pop-up menu.
To save a copy of all your playlists, choose File > Export Library. The exported information is saved in XML format.
To import an iTunes playlist, choose File > Import. The imported playlist includes only songs and videos already in your iTunes library. Unavailable items are removed from the list.

I can't tell anyone until I figure out my own iTunes problems. TechTool Pro has been chugging along for the last 11+ hours trying to repair/rebuild my iTunes partition. I ordered the Disk Warrior upgrade tonight, something I should have done when it was released in January.
Update: 19 hours and it's only 90% done. Hope TTP doesn't pull a Norton on me.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Phyllis Evans,

Thanks Dave, that part I've got. However, it doesn't handle the problem of copying the songs over without duplicates.
I'm out of town, so not a lot of time to devote, but when I do this, I just connect to the other system via file sharing, use command-o in iTunes to look for music, and select what I want from the other system. If the music already exists in the same format and same name, I have noticed iTunes will not copy the duplicates.
