I have created 2 playlists in beaTunes but when I open iTunes they are not there. What am I doing wrong?

    Are you perhaps using a folder-based library?

    See for background info.

    That prefix FileSystem: means that you are using a folder-based library.

    You need to create an iTunes-based library, if you want beaTunes to read and write to iTunes. For this to work, you need to turn XML sharing in iTunes on (see this article).

    Then create a new library in beaTunes and point it to your iTunes Library.xml file.
