    Just yesterday I'm opening up iTunes and to my disbelief all my music was not there (40+ gigs worth). I try and close down and open iTunes back up but nothing, I restart my xp computer and still nothing. So I look under file explorer and it seems like all my music is still located under the "iTunes music" folder. So I uninstalled all the apple products on my computer and reinstalled iTunes 9 et. Al. And still no results. Does anyone know how to get my library to show up in iTunes?

    You will probably have to import it back into iTunes. At least it is still on your computer.

    So will I have to import all the songs file by file? Or is there another way to import my library?

    something similar happened to me once, i forgot to uncheck the box in itunes where it says automatically sync my ipod to computers i tune, and totally replaced my list with the ones on the computer, when all i just wanted to was update / add some songs to my ipod.
    i had to rebuild everything one by one. totally stupid!
