I GET THIS MESSAGE WHEN I START ITUNES. (THE REGISTRY SETTINGS USED BY ITUNES DRIVERS FOR IMPORTING AND BURNING CD'S AND DVD'S ARE MISSING. PLEASE REINSTALL ITUNES.) IF I UNINSTALL AND REINSTALL ITUNES 10 WILL I LOSE MY ITUNES LIBRARY AND PLAYLIST?

    No you won't , but it's always good practice to have an up to date backup of your system before doing something like this

    THANKS
    I BACKED-UP MY ITUNES LIBRARY TO A EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE JUST IN CASE AND THEN I FOLLOWED THE UNINSTALL AND REINSTALL PROCEDURES IN ITUNES HELP. THEN I FOLLOWED THE RECREATING YOUR ITUNES LIBRARY AND PLAYLIST. IT ALL WORKED JUST FINE BUT I STILL GET THE MESSAGE EVERY TIME I START ITUNES. "THE REGISTRY SETTINGS USED BY ITUNES DRIVERS FOR IMPORTING AND BURNING CD'S AND DVD'S ARE MISSING PLEASE REINSTALL ITUNES." DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS.

    I know it was over a year ago when you asked this, so I guess you've got it sorted now... Anyway, I had the same problem so I entered the registry data manually. Here's the guide if you or anyone else needs it:
