I have had several issues with iTunes libraries and therefore have a couple of different libraries stored in my music folder on my hard drive. I just bought an iPhone, plugged it in and chose the wrong library to run in iTunes, and now I can't switch it back. I went to advanced preferences and though the iTunes music folder location change would work, but that doesn't seem to be the answer. Can someone help me? I have several playlists and lots of music that I would like to upload to my iPhone, but I need the correct library on my iTunes. Thank you.

    Quit iTunes, relaunch it with the Option key held down, click on Change Library, and specify the correct one.
