    windows iTunes 7.3 problem with library

    I'm glad to know someone else has had the same problems. Unlike Microsoft, I'm sure Apple will address it soon. In the meantime, I'm going to delete 7.3 and go back to using 7.2 myself. Have you tried that?

    just did a system restore, forgot that i had it, i have kept my 7.3 and all my songs by using a system restore, windows xp has it under
    start menu - all programs - Accessories - system tools - system restore
    just choose a checkpoint from before the problem, PC users will get kept in the dark because it is a Mac program but if you do this it doesn't "fix" the problem but will put all the settings back to where they should be and iTunes will work as it used to. for those whom it is happening at the very begining i cant help sorry.

    There was an iTunes update today to v7.3.1, that's supposed to addrss this issue.

    Download and install it and you should be OK.
