About a week ago, itunes started losing songs from my library. I get the exclamation point and asked if I want to locate the file. The file is always right where it's supposed to be! My library is quite large (almost 9,000 songs) and on a dedicated disk (a slave). itunes is on the startup drive. I tried re-importing the whole directory - which added all the songs that were currently "lost" but it continues to loose songs. Oh, and can anyone tell me where the album art is stored? I will eventually buy a new machine and I will need to transfer my library to the new machine and I really don't want to loose all that laboriously downloaded artwork. Thanks folks!
