Rebuilding iTunes

My iTunes had been crashing since Saturday.

Sunday and today, it crashed every 50 seconds.

I spent 90 minutes on the phone with apple care and they had me move my library to my desktop, restart the machine and then reimport everything using "add to library."

It took a while, but it worked. The key was to move my old library file into the new file so I preserved my ratings, playcounts, etc. (At least the ones iPodRip gave me back from the iPod).

When I had originally imported my files from my backup, some of the music was corrupted and it affected my new library.

First time I have ever encountered this particular problem, and I am glad it was so easily fixed.
