I'm having iTunes/external drive issues, as the OP is having in this thread. I've attached a screenshot. I'm using a 40gb external drive I pulled from an old Compaq to store my iTunes Library on. When I open iTunes, random songs, and even albums, will appear but not play. I get the "Would you like to locate it?" message when it can't find the file. I can close iTunes and reopen, and a completely different, random number of songs will 'disappear.' Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
