Combine iTunes Play Lists

Old Computer = Windows XP
New Computer = Windows 8
My iTunes was installed reinstalled on the new windows 8 computer. All my music is there, but not my playlists. I started to create new playlists [15] and was told that I probably didn't migrate all the proper files from the old to the new computer. Is it possible to combine the two separate playlists, each being on a different computer?

I have not tried to combine playlists. The music is in C:\Users\username\Music\iTunes in Windows 7 and 8. It should be in the same spot in XP except under Docs and Settings. Try bring the music from there into Windows 8.

To migrate the playlists you have to backup the library on the XP box then import it on the new PC.  Because I'm a Missouri mule though, I can't tell you whether or not iTunes will get excited about the change in locations.......

depends if you 'moved' your iTunes library or just started a new one.

Each item in the library is assigned a reference number/ID which the rest of ITunes uses to identify the song/video etc.

Playlists therefore contain references to the various bits of media, not the actual path/details of the media. as the references in a new library will not match up with those from the old library the playlists on one library wouldn't work on another.
