    Hi... technical question here. I have iTunes 6 on my XP laptop and it's installed on my C: drive. I have my actual "My Documents", "My Music" and iTunes library/songs on my D: drive (logical drive).

    I will probably need to reformat my C: drive soon. I will try to leave my D: drive untouched. If I leave my music on the D: drive, will iTunes be able to "recognize" the music files on my D: drive when I reassign the My Documents to the D: drive? Is there something else that I should be doing?

    Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure if you set it to that folder in preferences it will work. It works on macs, maybe not on your devil machine. Man, I REALLY don't miss reformatting hard drives.

    Thanks. I suppose you're right. I remember when I had to reinstall WMP once, it automatically imported the existing songs it found into the player. I'm hoping that iTunes will do the same.

    Yeah... I used to "enjoy" reformatting once - I figured I was being smart and geeky by "optimizing" my computer. I could care less these days. It gets old REAL fast. Trouble is I use a tablet and I really like the functionality. MS actually did a decent job; too bad about the OS. I wish Apple would hurry up and give us a tablet...
