I forgot to mention that this is an itunes library. (I think). The full path to it on my pc is c:\users\Joe\Music\iTunes\iTunesMedia\Music. Is this path "nested" in a way that BeaTunes isn't recognizing it since it's not from the root of the drive? (C:\iTunes\etc). I'm actually a retired Unix SysAdmin with a bit of Windows support thrown in so I should be able to follow directions, lol. My main concern is that my library has a few thousand albums that took me literally years to rate EVERY song in it. I'm VERY concerned that no matter what I don't lose those ratings I've done. Is the COM not working because I used a non-standard path?
