Default Anyway to transfer Limewire mp3s?

Since I've downloaded Limewire I've put together a pretty large music library but the problem is is that these mp3s are on my old computer and I just got a new computer so all those mp3s are stuck on my old computer.

I'm wondering if there's anyway to transfer these files or share them. Because one day I was looking through iTunes on my brothers laptop and my limewire list appeared on that.

So is there anyway to share them without burning them all on discs or dvds?

Thanks.

make an account on www.4shared.com

it allows you to have 1 gig of files

and if you run out of space you can always make another account

or just plug them into eachother (might need a crossover cable) and share the folder & then transfer the files. Or if you can get them both plugged into a router or something similar. They just need to be in lan and then you can access shared folders & transfer files.

but try it first with a normal cable if u don't have a crossover. Some (mostly newer) pcs can be connected with a normal cable too.

Well my new computer can get on the internet because of an ethernet cable (standard I think)from my router which also shares internet with my old comp. So far when I look under "Library" in Limewire nothing shows up from my old computer.

So I'm guessing because both my new and old computers share an internet connection they're in a LAN so it should work, right?

Anyways, I'll look into that crossover cable if I can't find another way.

Yea just enable file sharing on both systems and copy the data from one to the other

the default save path for limewire files is

C:\Program Files\Limewire\shared

good luck man

Simplest option. Open limewire's folder were your downloaded music is located. Open your my music folder. Create a folder such as Limewire downloads. Click tile windows vertically and highlight all your mp3's from limewire and drag them into the file you just created. If you have dual monitors just put limewire in one window and my music in the other screen. After it copys all the files they are now on your harddrive. Now copy them to a dvd-r disc. Pop the disc in your new computer and copy the files. Wouldn't that be easier than downloading them over agian from yourself or swapping harddrives?
