Hi

We need more information:

MP3 Maker full name and version - available under Help, About . . . .

Windows version - if 10 was this an update from 7 or 8 and have you installed the Anniversary update?

Hi

Works OK for me -

 

Did you check the file path for the iTunes library is correct and the XML file is present?

 

Browse to the folder indicated by your installation and check the file is there. 

Note: my filepath will be different to yours, my Documents folders are on a second hard drive.

Hi

The iTunes import dialog will tell you where it thinks the iTunes library is when you click the Advanced button.

Using Windows Explorer browse to the folder where the program thinks your iTunes is  - this is where mine is - circled in red - and you can see it matches the location I posted previously

 

and the file you are looking for is circled in blue.

By default the iTunes library folder on your computer should be in the folder which will open if you click the Music link (arrowed in green above) in Windows Explorer.

If it is not there then you need to open iTunes and look at its program settings to find where it is storing the library folder, check the xml file is there using Windows Explorer and in MP3 Deluxe 19 point the iTunes import dialog option to the correct folder locationto this location.

John,

It is very good of you to take the time and help me with this problem, I must admit I am at a loss to even find the iTunes import dialog or an Advanced button, can't see them anywhere perhaps you could point me in the right direction

Hi

The import dialog and Advanced button are accessed as shown below

 

Import dialog

 

After clicking Advanced you will then see the file path MP3 Deluxe thinks it should be.

I would suggest you read the installed PDF manual available under Help

That's interesting because when I select import iTunes library I get a message telling me that

 " iTunes is not installed. For this reason, no importing is possible"

I've reinstalled both iTunes and Magix
