Evening all!

I've just got onto my Macbook to find that my External HD (Western Digital My Book) has renamed itself to ' - ' this means that none of the songs in my iTunes will play because it cannot find the songs on the hard drive!

Anyone had this problem?

Any chance someone has accidentally pressed the return key on the drive and simply renamed it? If you rename it back to its original name does that fix the itunes issue?
