    You can use iTunes to archive all your songs on DVD's and transfer them to your PC's iTunes
    Drop in a blank DVD, hit "file" Then "backup disc"
    Easy peasy

    You can copy your music folder to a usb memory stick. Copy the folder to the laptop and add it to itunes.

    In itunes go to file and there should be a option to add a folder. Click add folder then browse for the music folder and it should import it.

    I dont use bearshare. If you can find the path bearshare keeps the music files at then copy the folder and do the same thing. It should work there has to be a folder location somewhere.

    I've closed your last multipost for this topic rjbrown. Do not open another one for this problem.

    Do you have iTunes on both your Desktop and Laptop? Can you network with them via ethernet?
