    Well, replacing your new iTunes Folder (I'm talking about the folder that contains the files "iTunes 4 Music Library" and so on) with an alias of the old one should do the job (assuming that you're using the same iTunes version).

    This is what I do. Works fine for me.

    or you can just go in the preferences under the advanced tab and tell itunes to use your other itunes folder.

    Ouch... a german saying comes to mind: "Warum einfach, wenn's auch kompliziert geht?" (Why doing it the simple way, if there's a complicated one?)



    Anyway, thanks for the hint

    I just had to do a clean install of Panther, and have lost all my iTunes playlists/library settings. I tried replacing the file 'iTunes 4 Music Library' with the old one from the 'Previous System' folder, but nothing happened.



    Did I miss something?
