Thanks. it was late last night and I crashed. No, the interface is the new ITunes one.In the library, I can locate there the music I loaded yesterday plus a coupel of cuts from music loaded weeks ago.I did a search for individual artists and discovered that the missing music is located in Libraries/Music//My Music/iTunes/iTunesMedia/Music
Thanks for this. The first option worked perfectly. But why did the Apple programmers not prevent this from happening or alert users to the fact that it would if it was unavoidable???
Excellent job: the ratings column seems to have disappeared
