I have recently had to reinstall XBMC from scratch ( 2-3 times)and frankly having to buildup database for 2000 albums is really a PITA. Is there any way that I could just backup the db file and just replace that incase of reinstalling.( Could it be that I just go into the userdata/addon database/ cdartmanager & see if there is a db file copy that and replace in case of a reinstall?) BTW I tried searching in the thread & in google but could find any related posts. I am on Winders7x64 with eden 11& AeonNox. ThanksThe File you need to copy is in the userdata\addon_data\script.cdartmanager\l_cdart.db.

Could a similar option to backup data ( esp if no changes in music library structure ) be incorporated & for importing in case of a reinstall ? if that's not too much that is ..might just help ppl. who find themselves reinstalling to have such option in the GUI
BTW any thoughts on my post http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=128927
The next release does have an update option(finally figured it out) for the script, so it should help reduce the about of time. For example if you copy both the MyMusic18.db and the l_cdart.db then perform an Music Library update then with the new version of the script, update the addon's database, the script's db should be updated and matched to XBMC's library.

Re scanned the library and it is now running through all the item in the music folders.
It does seem to be having issues connecting to MusicBrainz...

Sorry about that.. It seems they have tightened down even more at MusicBrainz.. The next release changes the method of retrieving the MusicBrainz info. And I will be notified with any excessive use.
I'll try to have a test version out this week..
