Since I'm have trouble in getting "Amazon's Cloud" to see my music files in iTunes, I'm wondering if the peculiarity I'm noticing with the .xml file in my iTunes folder is causing a problem. I have only one such file and alongside it is the green icon for my Sound Studio recording/editing app/program. When I trash the .xml file, it's replaced by the same green icon upon reopening iTunes, even though Sound Studio remains closed.
I'm wondering if Sound Studio might be prioritizing all other uses of iTunes. When I click on the .xml file, moreover, I'm told that Sound Studio cannot open files in the "Tab-delimited Text" format?
