    Here are some instructions I found on exporting ratings along with your iTunes library:

    I hope you get them back!

    all the data for iTunes like ratings, song counts, playlists etc are in the iTunes Library, iTunes Library.xml & iTunes Music Library.xml files in the iTunes folder. so if you can rescue them you can get your ratings back.
