@Lyddi- I was reading and comprehending fine (despite it being 2:30am here) until I got to the bit about the second account. Will still try to help if I can.
*off-topic ramble alert* This
is really surreal... I was just having the night from hell (have a
couple of rather nasty trolls trying to psych me out on here) and I come
across this- www.youtube.com/LyddiDesign ... Wow... I used to be a SimMaster on The Sims, back in the days.
Learned about troll management there, applying that knowledge tonight
and then I meet a fellow simmer!

OK- you created that YouTube account WITH a Google account so therefore it has its own Google account "controller".
This is a fact.
to find the right Google account: You say that you set up the YouTube
account with the AOL email address. IF you did that then THAT is the
Google account you need to check first. Go to: www.google.com
and log in with that email address. Once in- go to My Account up top
right. On the My Account you will note Dashboard on the right, middle.
Click to view it. :) Once in the Dashboard scroll down to the YouTube
section. What do you see?
If you see your LyddiDesign YouTube
account then good- it is the right Google account. Click on any of the
links there to be taken directly to the account, auto-logged in.
Conclusion- the password you used for that Google account IS the
password for that YouTube account.
If you do NOT see your
LyddiDesign YouTube account then that is NOT the right Google account.
Log out of Google and try the other. And keep trying all Google
accounts (ie email addresses) which may be involved. Sadly it is TOO
easy to make a Google account with ANY email which is to hand and so it
is possible that you are not even aware of how many email addresses are
actually now Google accounts.
Whatever you do- do NOT EVER close a
Google account. If you do you could be closing an essential Google
account and inherit yourself unending bother. Go slow- think and never
ever click "delete". Because, besides not deleting- only cosing, it
will ruin your chances that even Google can unravel the mess they are
sort of responsible for. :)
