    About every month now when I attempt to launch iTunes it fails and I receive this error message in the picture below. Anyone know why this keeps happening. Its really annoying since the only why I have found to restore it is to delete the library file then start fresh and add all my files again to a new library.

    which version of itunes is it? i had big problems with 2.x releases. Most of the time, a preference file would go corrupt. Upgrade first if you haven't already, then delete and reinstall would be my suggestion.

    I got that problem before when i moved the itunes library file and tried to change it with another one, of course this probably doesnt help but thats just my experience. (Ah dont ask me why i was changing the file......)

    Its version 3.0.1. I never move the file or mess with the library file at all. I do the very basic stuff with it adding songs playing etc.
