    With Lion, Apple shipped iTunes 10.4.
    Now, I had iTunes 10.5 Beta 3 installed, because of the iOS5 Beta.

    After I upgraded to Lion, and started iTunes for the first time, I got this message:

    Translated: The file 'iTunes Library.itl' is unreadable, because it's created with a newer version of iTunes. Do you want to download iTunes now?

    So, anyone having experience with this message in Lion, and most important: what to do? :confused:

    Its simple, upgrade your iTunes to iTunes 10.5 beta 3 again,

    Unless you have Time Machine and are able to restore these files from before you had the iTunes beta installed.

    So, that's without installing iTunes 10.4? Just install iTunes 10.5 Beta 3 again?

    I probably have Time Machine copies of those, but I don't even know when I installed the first iTunes beta :p
