After a few bumps in upgrading my iMac from Mojave to Catalina I've been trying to load my large music library from iTunes into Music App. When I try to select my iTunes Libary to start up in Music (hold down Option + Music Icon) the music app does not read the .itl file and tries to create a new one. I have a large music library (20k mp3s) and I do not want to re-import all of them. Doing so will remove my play counts and ratings history. Is there a way to get this conversion to work? Is there another tool I need to use?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Worked for my library with some 90K items using B7. Did not retry with B8.
Movies and Podcasts are another issue. But I can import those directly from the sources.
Did you do this using your iTunes library.itl file?
