Currently Being ModeratedMay 10, 2010 1:28 PM (in response to Melinda Lyons)I was having problems with my ATV syncing and tried recreating my library. In doing so, I mistakenly threw away the .xml file with all my playlist information along with various ratings that were tied to smart playlists.
I looked in my time machine backups, but it wasn't there.
If I restore my old library from a month ago, will that contain my playlist, ratings, etc. or not? I have looked but can't find this information anywhere.Mac Mini 1.66 GHz Dual Core, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 40 GB Apple TV, U2 3G iPod, 4th Gen 8GB Nano

Launch iTunes and the .xml will be recreated.

Yes it should. Make sure you restore the entire \Music\iTunes\ folder.iMac G5 (Rev B) ALS - 2 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.8), silver mini, blue mini, silver shuffle, iTunes 9.1
