    I just installed a new HD today and moved all of my TV shows and some movies over to the new drive to clear up some space. Now they all need to be relinked.. :( there must be a easier way out there than clicking to the location over and over again. Anyone willing to help me out?

    Theres a few things you could try. First delete all the files that are 'dead' in your library and then get itunes to scan your hd for the movies etc. There is a script for this here... http://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/scripts01.php?page=1#removedeadsuper

    Or I found another script which will attempt to use spotlight to find the files that have broken links and show itunes where they are. That's here...

    Thanks,

    they doesn't exactly do what would I would like... This really should be a feature within iTunes. I guess I'll just delete and re ad everything. Kinda sucks, I like to keep the dates the files were added cause I use appletv and sometimes like to browse by date...
