Damn iTunes...
    #11391833 - 11/05/09 05:45 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

I have all my songs on an external drive and apparently I loaded iTunes before the external was fully loaded or something and now it cant locate any of my songs...
:banghead:

I remember clicking and relocating one song at a time, for many albums, it sucked.

Now that I think about it, maybe I should have deleted them all and just re-drag and drop. All the tags and album art should have been intact. Doh. :foreheadslap:

Yea Ill probably be stuck doing this, but all the files that I organized and corrected (artist, song names, genres, etc) will have to be reorganized... :crazy:

I cant find that exact path, closest are:

file>library>organize library (but that wont find the files, just organize the ones it already has)

file>add folder to library (same as reimporting everything, which will probably take years, and will still have to reorganize)

edit>preferences>advanced>iTunes Media Folder Location (already did that but doesnt find the files)

edit>preferences>advanced>Keep iTunes folder organized (same as first path)

im pretty sure thats it. change the location to the external, save settings, restart itunes. see if that works.

i dont know if there is an option for "update library" or "rescan library" try and run that too (if it exists).

Use Sharepod to manage your iPod instead of iTunes. Then use Winamp when you want to listen to your collection. Fuck iTunes!

I'd say uninstall iTunes and reinstall whatever version you're familiar with and do all the preferences stuff before you add any music to the library. 

It will take while to rename and organize everything.  You may want to make sure you don't have sound check (under the playback tab) unchecked or it will take forever to finish.

iTunes sometimes has a problem with librarys organized by different instance of iTunes.  It's wierd.

I keep all my music on an external too and every time this has ever happened to me I just close iTunes and reopen it? Maybe you just need to update to the newest version to prevent this in the future?
