The Dreaded Grey Square........[i]but wait![/i]

I've contracted the grey square issue on iTunes (from fannying about trying to figure out how to rename image files so that they correspond on iTunes and Finder).
I've followed the instructions which appear in duplicate throughout this section however, when I try to move my old iPhoto library back off the desktop, the folder isn't offered as an option, i.e. the "OK" button wont highlight when that folder is selected. Dragging it into the new iTunes doesn't work either.
Can anyone offer a solution? I've currently deleted the new iPhoto library and I'm back to my original one, in all it's grey delight.

Why are you tying to move your old library back off the desktop? To where? The instructions for creating and populating a new library run as follows:
To create and populate a new library:
Note this will give you a working library with the same film rolls and pictures as before, however, you will lose your albums, keywords, books, calendars etc.
Move the iPhoto Library Folder to the desktop
Launch iPhoto. It will ask if you wish to create a new Library. Say Yes.
Go into the iPhoto Library Folder on your desktop and find the Originals folder. From the Originals folder drag the individual rolls to the iPhoto Window and it will recreate them in the new library.
When you're sure all is well you can delete the iPhoto Library Folder on your desktop.
In the future, in addition to your usual back up routine, you might like to make a copy of the library6.iPhoto file whenever you have made changes to the library as protection against database corruption.
