    You don't. You usually end up having to put all the music back into iTunes and re-creating all your playlists.

    Do you have a folder "Previous iTunes Libraries" inside your iTunes folder? Is there a chance to use this file?

    Every now and then I make a backup of the iTunes Library files, but the above mentioned folder was made be iTunes itself.

    Your signature says you have a 20 GB iPod. Don't you have your playlists on your iPod?
