I'm out of space on my laptop. I wanted to move my iTunes library off and onto a portable drive i have. So i followed the apple instructions of doing the consolidate library and it was going along - but at the end, there was an error. I *thought* it was related to the library move - "THis drive has a problem/error/something (and i didn't take a picture of it) and cannot be used." And it was done. SOOO, i figure it failed (you have to understand - i was on the pre-CHristmas overload). Switched the library BACK to the folder on the laptop - and everything was showing listed in iTunes still - so i'm thinking cool, i'm good. I have zero time to play music until yesterday when trying to put a few songs on the kids Nano's until i could get THEIR library up and running. No songs can be found. UGH. I can manually find them - but well, the thought of doing that for 3500 items when i have 700gb of videos to edit and burn on DVDs by the 5th is daunting. Have I totally mucked this up? Can i fix it "easily"? I can call Apple later if i have too.... i have no mental energy for that right now though. Thanks for any help/hints/whatever..... virtual chocolate??
