Beatunes won't sync

I'm running the latest version of beatunes, itunes, and snowleopard on a 2010 17" MBP. beatunes will not show the latest additions to my iTunes library. I want to analyze these tracks so I know their keys. I've tried synchronizing with itunes to no effect.

    Hi Thomas,

    most likely beaTunes is either pointing to the wrong iTunes Music Library.xml (in beaTunes preferences), it's not synced or your library is corrupt.

    The first you can fix in the preferences, the second by syncing (File menu) and the third is a problem.

    If option one or two don't work, please send me your log files - tells you where to find them and how to send them.

    1 and 2 did not work. I've attached all the files from ~/Library/logs/beatunes/

    thanks for the logs (for future reference - they compress really well).
    Please shut down beaTunes and then delete the file /Users/thomas/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/Database/beaTunes-DCC51E8C5D3F5FFE.index.db.

    Then restart beaTunes. Does it work now?

    How much free space do you have left on your harddrive?

    thanks that worked. I have plenty of free space on my hard drive 200GB out of 640.

    Great. There was some file writing error - that's why I asked for the size.
    I guess all is good now :-)
