Ok that's good. Thought since it only copies the songs back that it loses quality.

What you're thinking of is if you make an audio cd (aka .wav files) from the mp3 files you have on your computer and then convert this back into mp3...that's where you lose a lot of quality.

Copying mp3's directly from one place to another you don't lose anything at all:)

thank you! so much. i guess i just got wondering since i thought copying a file is not good as cutting it. lol i probably make no sense. so Senuti is the best? i know music rescue copies your songs and the playlists, so you know what was in your playlists. that is very important to me.

btw is their a way to make another library on same itunes?

Yes, just hold down the Option key while opening iTunes. It will show a dialog box where you can select a library or create a new one. You will need to use the Option key when opening iTunes in the future if you want to open it with one of the different libraries you may have.

Sorry about that. I just read that on the post before too :p . Anyway, you have to hold down the Shift key after clicking on the icon to open iTunes to get the library selection box to come up.
