    "The iTunes Library could not be saved.

    The required file could not be found"



    I get that message every time I restart iTunes.
    I'm running Vista, Latest version (8.0.2?).
    The songs are still there, but I can't play it. It just doesn't play anything.
    Its about 50% of my library.
    Actually, its more like 80%.
    In the Album Art section, it says "Album Art not Modifiable" even though I know it has Album Art.

    Now, its just going through my whole library (Except the ones I can't play). Its skipping the song after like 10 seconds of it playing it. Its different for every song though.

    Sorry, my external hard drive was overheating, so it was being weird.
    I took the case out, and connected it, after it cooled, now it works fine

    A good sign to buy a new external hard drive?

    Ah. It's a fairly old hard drive, I just found it the other day, and leave it on 24/7 connected to my PC, but yeah. It's a 500GB IDE hard drive, that runs at 5200RPM, so yeah. I do need a new hard drive. But, I'll wait until this is full, and then buy a 1TB

    Might wanna get a new drive soon.
    Wouldn't want the drive giving out and not having a backup somewhere...
