Ask Max: How do i recover a lost iTunes library?

Asked on 02/17/2009:

My blueberry iMac shorted out, but I want my iTunes library. How do I recover the info?


Sorry to hear about the loss of your Apple iMac. The best way to recover data from a Mac computer that will not power up is to remove the hard drive. You can then put the drive in an external drive enclosure or use a universal USB to drive adapter cable.

Then just connect the drive to your working Mac and collect the files you need from it. Below is a link to a G3 iMac upgrade article that should help you remove your hard drive. Just follow the instructions for upgrading the hard drive up to the point of removing the old one.

Hope this helps,
