    Itunes lost my TV shows
    All my Apple software up to date. I have a couple of TV series I purchased through iTunes. It had always been located in a folder called TV Shows inside my iTunes Music folder. Not too long ago I chose to reorganize my music library via the preference panel in iTunes. After doing some final cleanup of unwanted songs etc, I took a vacation from viewing any podcasts or TV shows. Today, when I tried to play one of the downloaded TV shows, I am told by iTunes that the file couldn't be found and would I like to locate it. I tried to locate, but it was not to be found. I searched the HHD, my Time Machine (only @ a month old) and a second backup drive that I added to the Airport Extreme. No TV shows cold be found. iTunes indicate that the shows were indeed downloaded, but that is all. Then I remembered I had an even older backup located in a safe area that was created BEFORE I had reorganized iTunes and luckily I found a folder inside the iTunes Music folder that held those TV Shows. Right now I am copying them over to my HHD and wonder just where should I place them. Right now, there are folders called: Audiobooks, AutoAddToItunes, Downloads, Mobil Apps, Movies, Music, Podcasts & Voice Memos inside my iTunes Music folder. Should I create one called TV Shows or just let iTunes import them to the correct location? thanks

    Since they are still being shown in iTunes - right click on one of them in iTunes - that will give you the location of where iTunes thinks it is located - move your backup copies there.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    bobtomay,
    That was one of my problems-the location no longer existed. I decided to remove all from my library and re-import, but set the preference to copy to media folder when importing and so a TV Shows folder was created and items placed there. I don't understand why when I had iTunes reorganize my files, the tv shows weren't placed in the correct spot as it did for my pop casts. Thanks for you advice.
