    Ok, itunes, what is it now? xD

    I turned on my mac last night, and opened itunes (9) and went to start my music, *pop up* Hmmm! I said, as i read the pop up saying it cant find the music, i thought, mhm ok so i found it and fixed it, next one, WTF it cant find it either? 50 songs later and i come up with "Ok, its screwed" I have my music on a external HD, and never had this problem before, what gives? I did a clean up and everything, didnt help one bit... Anyone know why this has happened? I've now made a new library and has dragged my old itunes music folder to the new one, anyone know why it broke?

    probably started iTunes and the HDD wasnt active yet or along those lines.

    Start iTunes by holding the Option key and choose the Library on your external drive and it should relink them and be fine...

    I had tried that. Same problem came up. -.- 5327 files I've moved and waited for iTunes to put in a new library. I'm hoping that will work?
