If you launch iTunes, go to the HELP menu and select iTunes Help. Once the iTunes Help service comes up type 'rebuild library'.
In the results of your search you will see that it's divided into two sections - HELP TOPICS and SUPPORT ARTICLES. Focus on the support Articles and you will find an article titled, 'How to re-create your iTunes Library'
NOTE: The article is OSX/XP & Vista centric.
ADVICE: It's a short article and will take you no more than 2 minutes to read. Read it in it's entirety beforehand in order to get a good understanding of what your steps will be.
Report back with any successes/failures or questions.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2007 12:36 PM (in response to Alexander Santos)Thanks for the reply, however after I posted, I was looking at the "preferences" clicked "ok" without changing anything, and everything magically fell into place. But found two new issues:
1) Synced iPod, and I have noticed ever since I downloaded 7.3 (including 7.3 past versions), what I have been listening on the iPod has not been showing up on the play counts in iTunes.
2) Because of the new way of organizing #s, I decided to reorganize my library (before had all artists that I only had one song had "z-" before) so I started puting "9-" infront. About half way through I decided to do it differently. Deleted the library and put in another, and the "9-" is still in front of those artists. Searched for hidden documents or other library files deleted and emptied recycle bin...still artists had the "9-" infront. Guess I'll have to manually change them all back, but this is different from the past.
I wish Apple could have a list of improvements, of what to expect, when we download new versions...could stop alot of headaches...ipod 4g 30gb Photo, Windows XP

If that doesn't work, Restore the iPod.Intel iMac dual-core 2.0 gHz, 1Gb RAM, Mac OS X 10.4.6, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
