Thanks ree Ive tried all that page already, spent the last three hours on it. Problem is that i think that page is US and most people are on MAC and other operating systems and all their ideas that i have tried jus dont work. I nearly about to restore computer to factory settings. Im at witts end. :-)

Those suggestions are all for Windows (Macs don't have a registry, or a C: drive). Did you try deleting the folder and doing the regedit?

Delete itunes or one of the folders ?

Read the thread the most successful suggestion seems to be this: In XP, iTunes creates a registry key Win2KMyMusicFolder with a data value of "My Music", that in some cases, iTunes is not able to correctly identify.

Go to Start ---Run ---regedit ----Edit ---Find----Win2KMyMusicFolder and modify the value "My Music" for your complete data path i.e. (C:\Documents and Settings\majofa\My Documents\My Music
