I had Windows XP, installed on my C: drive, and my iTunes library was on the E: drive. I've now replaced XP with Windows 7, so any iTunes settings that were in the registry or its Program Files folder have been lost. I still have all the mp3s and the iTunes Library files on my E: drive, however.
I've installed iTunes on Windows 7, set the "iTunes Media folder location" to E:\iTunes in the Preferences, but I don't have anything appearing in iTunes. Is there a magic step I'm missing, or do I have to "re-create" my library?
(I know I probably should have done something sensible like used iTunes on XP to back up my library, but I just wasn't thinking.)
