    Hi, please help!

    I opened up a song in iTunes this evening and all of a sudden it asks me to choose my library, completely out of the blue. I'd used iTunes this morning and there was nothing wrong with it. I made the error of choosing the wrong one, an old one, and now I can't get back to the correct library! I think I've found it in Finder (i've deleted the old one now) but it's not opening; it just switches to iTunes and does bugger all. How do I get it back? Have I lost my library forever?

    Thanks,

    Ian

    Have You Tried

    Time machine backup prior to your mistake? I doubt your library could have just vaporised like that. So when you click music, it comes up with nothing? No albums no artwork?

    Try restoring with TM. If that won't do it then I'm a bit stumped
