    I was trying to add album art to a movie in iTunes 8.01 I clicked "OK" and it showed me a progress bar and then iTunes became unresponsive. I reopened iTunes and clicked on the movie and iTunes crashed again... it keeps on crashing every time. So I tried deleting the plist file... no luck Then I tried reinstalling itunes from apple site.. still crashes every time I try to do anything with that specific file everything else works fine. Is there any way to fix this keeping my iTunes library in tact I just finished perfecting it I have all the album art and lyrics and I dont want to lose them. Please help! Thanks.

    I wish I could offer expert guidance, but all I can offer is empathy.

    What iTunes has caused me in the past:

    screech at Old Man because of immense frustration

    nearly hurl my Nano 2nd G across the livingroom

    say every bad word I know at least 4 times an hour

    to run outside shouting for any 14-year-old geek in the neighborhood to help me

    to run outside waving a $20 bill shouting for any 14-year-old geek in the neighborhood to help me

    to consider iTunes to be a cultural well-kept joke - that it really doesn't work at all but everyone just tells each other that it does - sort of like the Emperor's New iTunes.

    to cry real tears that I would be left out of the iPod arena because I couldn't understand how to navigate in iTunes

    to stand in awe of anyone who is able to (effortlessly in my eyes) load up their iPods with all sorts of goodies while I struggle to even log in

    Huh...iTunes never once crashed or has done anything weird for me. No issues at all, no joke.

    Something is wrong with the file. The easy way to fix it is to find some software that can read it (without crashing) and ave it back to disk. Try using Quicktime. read it up make any small triveal change then save it back to disk. ffmpeg would work too.
