iTunes JOY. Bleh.

Well, this is fun.

The “iTunes Music Library” XML file — the data file that keeps all the playlists and categories and such — got corrupted. I still have all of my music (on the original drive, and on my iPod), but iTunes doesn’t know what to do with it.

Over 12,000 songs — organized via playlists into albums and categories. Now that organization needs to be re-done.


What I need to do is copy the playlist data from my iPod (where it’s still intact) to iTunes. I’ve downloaded iPodRip, in the hopes that I can just import the playlist data from my iPod, but I don’t have high hopes — I think the program is actually more concerned with copying the actual music files.

If anybody has any ideas, I’d be glad to hear ’em.
