I've used iTunes for years, and tonight I'm seeing this error for the first time ever. I open iTunes, and I get a dialog box that tells me it's "Importing 'iTunes Music Library.xml". And it just goes, and goes and goes. I've got 102GB of music, kept on an external drive. I use smart playlists and play count A LOT. Somebody tell me I don't need to re-create my entire library. Please. I don't want to lose those play counts.
