Everytime i close itunes all my songs, playlists, and album art are lost. I have to manually drag the itunes music folder and drop it into itunes and wait for it to all finish "processing" or whatever. Then when i close itunes or turn off my computer it all gets deleted again. Does anyone know what i need to do? Thanks.

Any chance your library is on an external drive?

Have a look in iTunes -> Prefs -> Advanced -> General and see if you have the boxes ticked as per my attachment.

I have them checked like that, could it have something to do with the location of my music files?

Well according to you positive response to my post, your music collection should reside at:

MacintoshHD -> Users -> YourUserNameHere -> Music -> iTunes -> iTunes Music

Is that the case for you?
