this may have been covered before but i never got an clear answer and it literally been bothering me ever since the first iPod with Video support came out. So anyway heres my issue. I have lots of 1080p movies and tv shows converted with iFlicks and everything is showing up fine. Obviously due to the fact that my macbook only has about 128GB of storage i have to move everything to an external drive as soon as it its converted. now heres the annoying part: when I close iTunes and unmount the drive before mounting it again, some and sometimes all of my movie/tv show covers disappear unless i click on each and every file one by one. is there no way to fix this permanently? going through the whole library to get the cover art back is rather annoying and also time consuming with big libraries. background: i convert and tagg movies/tv shows using iFlicks and have it set to auto-import to itunes once its finished processing. Next i either go to iTunes (right click > jump to source etc) or through the finder to move the files to the proper external harddrive folder. Finally i go back to itunes and click on those files again and pick the new source from the external harddrive as itunes obviously cannot find the files as i was moving them otherwise.
