The iTunes Media folder contains music purchased on iTunes, music imported from CDs and other iTunes files including iOS apps. You can transfer this folder to a USB drive just like you would any other file on Windows 7 or 8 -- drag the folder's contents onto the USB drive. To find the folder's location and make sure that it contains all of your music, look in your iTunes preferences.
Open the Edit menu in iTunes 12 and choose Preferences. If you can't see the menu bar, press Ctrl-B to show it.
