I don't know if this belongs in this forum, or the IOS forum or what, but here's my issue.

I have the latest version of Mavericks on my MBP, the latest version of iTunes and the latest version of IOS on my iPhone 5s and iPad. I have 65 ebooks in iBooks (also fully updated). I moved my iTunes folder to a second drive by copying the Music folder from my Home directory to the second drive, then amending iTunes preferences to point to the new location. All my music, podcasts and apps are just fine and syncing with my iPhone works well.

But I have problems when syncing the ebooks. There are two books that will NOT sync to my iPhone because iTunes says it cannot find the files, and one additional book that will not sync to my iPad (for a total of three) for the same reason. But the books are visible in iTunes, iBooks on my MBP can open them just fine, and they are already ON the iPad and iPhone. I tried re-downloading them from the iBooks store to the MBP, and to the iPhone and iPad, and that seemed to work. But iTunes still reports them as missing and won't sync them.

It's not fatal, but annoying to get a pop-up window with that report when I sync.

Any hints on how to get iTunes to find the missing books? With Music and Podcasts you can point to where the missing files are and iTunes updates, but I cannot find that function in the books section. All I can see are the 65 covers, including the so-called "missing" three.
