    Hi, I'm using iTunes on a laptop. All of my music is on my NAS (network attached storage). As a result when I take my laptop somewhere my music doesn't come with me. That part is expected and fine.

    The problem is, sometimes iTunes will try to find those files when I'm not connected and, of course, can't find them. As a result it puts a little exclamation mark next to every file and will skip that file even once I'm reconnected to my network.

    When reconnected, if I manually click on each song the exclamation mark goes away, but I would have to do that for EVERY file... is there any easier way to make those go away or never show up in the first place?

    Try a restart when reconnecting to the network. I used to have a little problem when I reconnected an iBook to the home network after awakening from sleep mode having been elsewhere. Some things didn't sync right at first.
