There may be similar stories out there, but none quite the same as mine. Basically, I changed the location of my itunes music to my new hard-drive by clicking Preferences; changing location to external and opening a new folder called MUZAK. I okayed that and consolidated the itunes. THEN, exclamation marks appeared all over the place! WHY?!! I thought I did everything right. Now, when I click on them, it can't find the file, although it did for some of them and then made a copy of it. Where can I find the rest? What I've I re-directed itunes to where it was previously? Please, please help - I've got 7,000 tunes missing!

Here's the way Apple says to do it: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1449. I suspect you neglected the "consolidate" instructions.

Thanks for the response! However, I did consolidate the itunes. If I consolidate again, will it work?

Perhaps the renaming of your library is the culprit. Do you have your MUZAK folder in an iTunes library folder? Perhaps within iTunes, when you selected your new folder, you did not drill down far enough to get the right library selected? Without knowing exactly what your folder setup is, it is hard to determine what is causing your problem.

Maybe I should add that my Library was as it originally should have been when I created the new folder ie. I didn't change anything regarding itunes.

I'm not at the mac right now, so doing this from memory -- in your users directory, you should have a folder called Music. Within that, should be iTunes. That is where your music should live. If you want the MUZAK folder, it should be in that iTunes folder. When you tell iTunes where to look, you have to go all the way to the MUZAK folder, not just iTunes. Does that clear anything up?

You may have deleted some song from your library folder and iTunes still have the "shortcut" to the song in the playlist.
