The easiest solution is to close iTunes, delete or drag out iTunes Library.itl.

Start iTunes, then add your music folder.

Your library seems to have been converted to a newer version of iTunes. You need to upgrade your iTunes software.

The file "iTunes Library" cannot


iTunes.exe has been set to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. For best result, turn off compatibility mode of iTunes before you open it.

> 1. Make sure iTunes isn't running.
2. Click Start, type regedit, then press Enter.
3. Navigate to this Registry location:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
4; Its better you clean/repair Windows registry with RegInOut.
4. Look in the main pane for a key that refers to iTunes. If you find one, delete it, then exit the Registry.
5. Start iTunes. The offending message should be gone!

ITunes won't start. message says itunes library created with a newer version of itunes.


Just upgrade to the newer version of the firmware. If you have other problems they can be solved, but it that is the only message you are getting just install the latest version of itunes. You may have to un authorise the account from that computer if you are over the alloted 5 machine threshold. There is also a one time reset in the itunes menu, but remove it from either it's own installer "in the progrem" or from the control "add/remove" programs first. If you hav issues at that point come back and exlain the message yu got and I will walk you through what to do

I downgraded itunes from 8.0 to 7.5 now when i try running itunes it says (The file "i Tunes Library.itl" cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of itune). how do i fix that?


You can fix this by updateing. Apple puts blocks in place to cause the older versions to stop working. They do this because people learn how to unlock the music they buy on itunes so Apple has to create new locks. To avoid this, never update. They claim to be fixing bugs but they are really making it difficult to remove the locks. They are also updating itunes for the itouch and iphone.
If this didn't help, you can go into chat on Apples website and they will tell you more about the error code being thrown. Good Luck,
