Thanks - that worked as far as opening another library is concerned so thanks for that. However, none of the available libraries appear to be particualry recent. The most up-to-date I can find is from October 2006!
I suppose this will teach me to back-up my library regularly.
Can I do anything with the data on my iPod?
Ouch! Yes, I always back up my iTL file weekly - more often if I've added/changed lots of things, and ALWAYS before an iTunes update.
There are some 3rd-party iPod managers that can get stuff off an iPod. I can't recommend any since I haven't tried them. Here is a wiki on them, and you can google for even more choices.
edit - did you make sure to check in a folder named Previous iTunes Libraries?

I've managed to find and load a library from about a month ago - all the play history, ratings and playlists are there. But ... now iTunes can't find any of the songs! I know how to locate an individual song but I can't possibly do that for all 10,000!
Surely there must be some way of 'telling' this library what root to follow for the music folders.
