    I've just plugged in my external hard drive to play some music in iTunes and many of the tracks have the exclamation symbol next to them. Is there a quick way for me to rectify this issue as 300+ tracks now have this symbol.

    Thanx in advance :(

    Exit iTunes.
    Make Sure the external drive is showing up as a volume in Finder
    ReOpen iTunes.

    The exclamation points indicate a problem - usually that the file is not found.

    If reopening iTunes doesn't resolve, right-click one of the effected songs and select Get Info. Check the path listed there, and make sure it is still valid - it's possible that the external drive got a different volume name (maybe adding a 1 to the end of the name), making the path invalid.
