Thanks a lot Steve

Yesterday iTunes suddenly decided, for some reason, that it had no tunes in its library. Thankfully they were all still there (all 3800 of them) on disk, so all I had to do was point iTunes at the folder. Then there was the scary business of reloading them onto my iPod, which it no longer recognized of course. But the annoying thing is that all my playlists have disappeared, and all my ratings too. So I can no longer listen to my "Friday" playlist or my "5-star rated" playlist. Grr.....

That's got to be exceptionally annoying

This has happened to me at least 3 times now (16,000+ songs). It probably annoys my wife more than me because I moan about it for days afterwards!

I now take a back up of the iTunes library on a regular basis so that next time it happens, I will be able to revert to it pretty easily.
