    You'll have to rebuild the library. Delete the old .itl file and try importing the iTunes Library.xml file (File menu -> Import and select the .xml file in the iTunes folder).

    If that doesn't work, you'll have to use the Add Folder to Library command and select the iTunes Music folder to get all your contact back into iTunes. You'll lose ratings and playlists, but your content should all play.

    See if you have a previous iTUnes Library first. If it has date from when you upgraded to v7.7, just get rid of the date in the filename and use it in the older version of itunes.
