Since updating iTunes 2 days ago I cannot open it and get the message "The folder iTunes cannot be found or created and is required. The default location for this folder is inside the "Music folder."   What do I do?????


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

Hey Patricia,

 

If you are using your MacBook Pro, open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option key. You should see this:

 

HT1589_02-osx-new_library-002-en.png

If you've always had your library in the same, default location, you'll want to open the following file:

/Users/username/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library.itl

(where it says username, just select your own)

 

Hopefully that will open up your normal library file.
