My iTunes is broken.
I opened it this morning and it said the file was damaged.
All the playlists are gone. I mean all the playlists, not just the ones I created, but all the default playlists too.
I tried updating the program, but it didn't fix it.
I was able to restore the library of songs. At first only a small portion of songs showed up, but I was able to add all the other stuff I've imported.
I was going to recreate my playlists by play count, but the playcount only works for the songs that originally showed up.
I use the recently added playlist all the time, but it's gone.
There is no help feature for disappearing playlists.
This is bad timing as I have a ton of work to do and I rely on my different playlists for different things (like my exercise playlist).
I have almost 6000 songs in iTunes so recreating my playlists is not a small task. Plus, I have no way of knowing if some of my CDs still didn't make it back in.
What a strange problem.
