I was using Azareus and my comptuer did that skizoid thing Macs sometimes do when you use azareus (when the computer freezes and tells you to restart by holding down the power key in like 6 languages framed by a rectangular black box). I have a 15 inch powerbook which is three years old. When I started up again, my iTunes library file was corrupt/unreadable. iTunes informed me that my library was unreadable, created a new library, and renamed the old one "iTunes Library (Damaged)." All my music is still present on my hard drive. But the library is wasted. I confess I don't know much about xml (which I've seen some people reference in other threads). Basically, is my library caput, including my times played and ratings info? Do I have to reimport all the music I have on my hard drive into iTunes anew? Is there anyway to salvage any of the iTunes data like ratings or playlists? Thanks. Any suggestions much appreciated.
