so i installed Garage band, made a quick, 10 second loop, and exported it to itunes. It opened up itunes, and EVERYTHING was gone!!! Playlists, ratings, play counts, play dates, artists, albums, it was all gone!!! Well i reboooted, and relaunched itunes. I imported my itunes library .xml file, and it brought everything back. EXCEPT PLAY COUNTS AND TIMES!! now all of my smart playlists are useless! how do i get my play counts back? i havnt had a problem since my data loss last may, and regularly back up my itunes 4 music library, my itunes.xml file and temp file on my ipod. WHAT DO I DO??? BTW, safari also refuses to prompt me to save my password when logging in to these forums. It saves for all other sites though. WHY??? how do i get my computer to stop screwing around with me? this has all happened in the past 3 days!!!
