    As the title indicates, I just bought a brand new laptop.

    How do I best transfer my music collection to the new laptop?

    Export collection from old laptop to external hard drive, then import collection to new computer.

    That is the simple answer. I prepared to do that already. I've saved the music from the MY MUSIC file to an external drive, but I was hoping that there would be a way to do it so that all my playlists, etcetera, would also be transferred.

    Go to your MY DOCUMENTS > native instruments > traktor >

    There you can save all your settings, playlists, mappings, etc

    There is a difference between just copying your music files and exporting and importing your collection via Traktor. If you use the export/import collection feature, it will save your playlists, cues, etc and set up your new browser tree just like your current one.
