I had iTunes 7.0.2 open playing music, I then received a hard crash or system freeze. I restarted and opened iTunes again and received the message, "iTunes Library File Damaged", iTunes then finished booting up and showed a blank window with no music, playlists, etc. I had playlists for over 16,500 mp3's or about 65 GB of music. Unfortunately I don't backup my Library file very often and the last backup was 6 months ago, so S.O.L. there. Question: Does anybody know how to recover my playlists from the damaged library file? I've done a pretty thorough search of the different forums I frequent and haven't found a solution. Inevitably somebody who is trying to "help" always gives me advice on how to transfer my playlists from my iPod to my G5 which doesn't apply to my situation at all. If you don't know the answer please don't reply. Comments like, "You should back up your data more often", or "I don't know the answer, but..." aren't helpful, so save those little jewels for another thread please.
