iTunes changed the mapping of my music. How can I fix?

First, I do not have iTunes manage my music. I keep my files on a network mapped drive and copy them into iTunes.

For example, my music is on:


Recently I moved my music to a new external storage unit with the same share name. I *thought* everything was ok as it could still find my music even with the other server shut down.

However, just today I realized that iTunes has renamed the path to all my music:


I can't get this to change. OBviously you can't just edit the .XML file as the .itl file will just overwrite it.

So... how was iTunes able to change it once... and how can I set it back to mp3 without the "-1" appended?
