Since updating iLife to the latest build as per Apple updates, sometimes Garageband refuses to start up, instead hanging with a sign saying "initialising" and then hanging indefinately. After forcing it to shut down multiple times, it suddenly gets the right idea and sorts itself out. Anyone having similar trouble or know how to fix this?

I have the same problem. But I can never get GarageBand '08 to open. I have a new 20" iMac 24 running Leopard when I click on GB a dialog box appears saying "Initializing..." and I have to do a force quit. Any suggestions on what I can do to get this working?

Then I clicked "Update", and when I previewed again, it says that "Installation is initiated" but nothing seems to be happenning??? Why??? Something to do with the program??? HELP!!!!!!!

I am also experiencing this problem with my new iMac. Please, if anyone knows how to activate the loop library from this state, what am I missing?

Found a solution here that worked:
http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=5822250

I'm now having trouble creating loops. and effects, but feel confident I can figure it out.

In short, open finder, find the folder containing the loops, and drag it to GarageBand, over the Loops eye icon. You should see a green plus sign, and from there can drop the files, and they will be added to your Loops Library.
