What version are you using?
Please register your license key so you can upgrade to the current version.

Be sure to transfer with similar versions of Cross. As you seem to be an old user it may be you have an older version of the collection file.

Thanks for registering. It shows you're a real user and not a spammer.

Some steps:
Make sure you have the same version of Cross on both.
3 items
1. the collection file (s)
2. the analysis files
3. your tracks.

The tracks is easiest. You can copy them to your new notebook.
If you use the same foldernames you can use the collection without problem. Else you can pretty simple 'relocate' the tracks when you open the collection.

The analysis files hold a lot of info per track. In Preferences is set where the folder is located. SO you can select a different folder. As you're an old time user it is pretty likely the new default folder has a different name from your old system. Also somewhere in versions 3 the naming of the track has changed from filename-ish to a unique string value.

Yu can have more than 1 collection file. Only copy the file after Cross was closed properly. And wait till the *.journal file has been handled (and does no longer exist). If it doesn't disapper you have to copy it as well and see what happens.

If you're a bit handy with PC and have large collection you can use an program like 'fastcopy' which copy tracks at dos level resulting in higher speed transfers than when using Win copy function. Setting up a share is required. (if you don't know what this paragraph is about just forget it and use an external disk.)

No. should be no limit at all.

Though I don't understand what you exactly mean. What is loading when/how.

Sorry,
these days I did not have internet connection.
Now he has uploaded all the songs, but unfortunately on the site Dj-tech there are no more drivers for the DRAGON two and I can not connect ...
Thanks
