Hey guys.
Thanks to anyone who gave us a hand with the mail thingy, that works like a dream. Now i got a problem with itunes...
I bought an external hard-drive to store all my music on, it all ported over fine, and the cds copy into the proper folders, it's just that when i leave the computer alone for a couple of hours, itunes reverts the the old folder where my music was kept.
It's not a HUGE hassle, but it is annoying to have to wait for all my tunes (Going up towards 6000 tracks) to load on before playing a song.
Any help would be really, well, helpful

have you set the location of your library to be on the external HD?

the option is in iTunes preferences, Advanced tab.

What version of iTunes do you have?

I also have my iTunes on an external HD, and before 4.7.1 came out, if I opened iTunes without the external HD plugged in, the library directory would just revert to the default music folder.

Since the new version this hasn't been a problem though. Even if I open iTunes without the external drive plugged in, the directory I set for my music is preserved in the iTunes preferences.

So if you haven't upgraded to the newest version of iTunes, I would try that.

Hope it helps.
