  2. Export your entire C4 media library to a XML file (store in a place that you can easily find - will use in this tool - 1st file field).
  3. Open your iTunes, right-click a playlist that you would like to convert and select "Export". Save these files as a XML file (store in a place that you can easily find - will use in this tool - 2nd, 3rd and or 4th file field).

In case you want to show your appreciation for the long hours and late nights spent, to build a tool for all of us to use, please feel free (j/k - trying to make you feel guilty). 🙂 You never know, it may provide me the motivation needed to make this tool more refined. But seriously, I didn't build this for the money. I just wanted to solve MY problem and assumed others would find it useful as well. I hope the tool helped you guys/gals out!!
