    My roommate's iTunes (mac) stop advancing to the next song this morning. When a song ends the player just stops. When you hit the advance button (>>) it also just stops. We update to 7.3 and reloaded her library and nothing is working. A quick google search didn't bring anything up. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Hmm... my first hunch is that you installed some QuickTime component (or she installed it) that iTunes doesn't like. If you have any components installed try moving them to the desktop. If iTunes works normally now, there's your problem.

    Nothing has been installed recently (except iTunes 7.3). Her library is on an external disk and now we're noticing that more and more songs won't even play (even though the files are actually there on the disk and appear to be fine). We verified the disk permissions using Disk Utility and there were no problems. These files will not play with any other program either (VLC, Quicktime etc.) so something's going wonky.

    Use Disk Utility to check your disk. It may have experienced file system damage. If so, Disk Utility can attempt to fix it. Go ahead and do so. If you get the error message "The underlying task reported failure on exit" your disk has damage that Disk Utility cannot fix.
