Migration to another Macbook Pro

Hi there..

  i have migrated my library as explained in one of your posts.... My tracks, playlists, cue points and everything is there.  However the Gridlines are not so the click doesn't work..... Does this mean I have to reanalyse everything and reedit my grid lines ??

it means most likely that the path is wrong so if you named the macbook something different on your home directory, the connection is not being made between the track and the wave date, for example 

if you old macbook was

/USERNAME/Library/Pioneer

and now you called it

/USERNAME123/Library/Pionrer

the link is now broke between the data and where it thinks it "should" be

Hey thanks for the reply......but my names are the same and I've copied the exact paths.... Everything has transferred fine just not the grid lines they all need analysing again which is days of work.

in my past experience I had this and it was the name, even if it's just a space vs no space. I have my name as Brian Chiaino on one mac and BrianChiaino on another and the paths were gone, I had to create a new username with the space in it

can you confirm the data is in the folder

navigate to /users/dj/library/Pioneer/Rekordbox/PIONEER/USBANLZ

in the USB folder make sure it is filled with folders, should have copied from the old macbook
