    I recently purchased a MacBook Air and transferred all my iTunes and iPhoto files from my external HD. All my iTunes files play fine on the Air. However, every time I double-click a picture to expand it, a "!" comes up. I've rebuilt the library and used 3rd party apps to rebuild and fix as well....still no luck. My mac pro's library(the original location of the iPhoto library) has absolutely no problems displaying them. I've done this process of copying these files on all my previous MacBook and MacBook Pro purchases. Any help is appreciated.

    I'm running 10.5.1 and it only gives the option of dragging the iPhoto Library onto the Air. Should I "Show Package Contents" and drag the files over like that? Thanks for the quick replies.

    No luck. I can't think that's it's anything to do with the Air, but I am running the same OS version as my MBP and have never had an issue like this before.

    no problem, if not it could be a hardware issue, you could try repairing disk permissions on your hdd
