I was able to fix this problem, thank you.
So like others I upgraded to 11; tried to keep an open mind but long story short I DON'T LIKE IT.
SO, I decided to try a System Restore to my previous iTunes version but now I can't open iTunes due to a "New iTunes Library" error. /facepalm
I'm assuming it has something to do with 11 changing my Library file format and the file not reverting during the restore? Or something?
Is there anything I can do at this point? Any easy fix I'm not aware of?
Or will I have no choice but to uninstall/re-install the previous iTunes? (If this truly is the only solution could you please point me in the direction of the easiest way to go about it, I'm kiiinda computer-literate but I've heard that it can be a pain in the butt)
I'm sure my songs themselves are fine, right? So my main thing is that I REALLY don't want to lose my playlists, I have dozens of them, that's what I'm the most worried about. I do keep all my music/playlists fairly up to date on my iPod as well, if that would help me restore my library. Any help is greatly appreciated!
