Rekordbox Problem on opening

Hi, I am currently having a lot of trouble with Rekordbox, This problem is occurring both from an older version of rekordbox (1.2.0) and the latest version of Rekordbox. When I open Rekordbox, the logo pops up etc, but the program does not. It leaves me with nothing. I can open a preferences window via the top of the screen (I'm using mac btw) although cannot open Rekordboxes main screen (with player, playlist view etc). This is causing me a lot of stress as I have an important gig tomorrow night and need to export my playlists!

If anyone knows how to fix this can you please let me know ASAP

Thanks

@King Kong > What version of OSX are you using?

It could be that your database is corrupted or damaged and you need to try loading the backup database. Ensure rekordbox is closed and find your database in the following location:

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Pioneer\rekordbox

Vista: C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Pioneer\rekordbox

Win 7: C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Pioneer\rekordbox

OSX: /Users/yourusername/Library/Pioneer/rekordbox

Rename datafile.edb to datafile.edb.old

Rename datafile.backup.edb to datafile.edb (removing .backup)

Restart rekordbox and see if it opens. If it does, the main database was corrupted and the backup was working okay.

If it does not open, go back and rename ALL of the datafile files in that folder to .old and restart Rekordbox once more. If it does load, both the original and backup database were corrupted and you will have to re-import your songs once more.
