    So i have an external hard drive and load most of my music from there, well i just powered up itunes while it wasnt plugged in and now while trying to play songs Im getting the so and so song could not be used cause the original file could not be found. Is there anyway I can make itunes recognize them again normally now that my externals plugged in? rather than having to manually locate each and every song again on the hard drive

    Is the library done (meaning ill have to reload every album to play the songs again)? The songs are still on my ipod

    Delete your library, and choose only to delete them from the library, not from the computer.

    Then take the whole iTunes folder that you have on your external HDD, and drag it into iTunes. That's how it works for me, as I also have an external HDD.

    Seriously - that's gonna cause him a ton of extra work.

    All you have to do is quit iTunes, turn on your hard drive, and then start iTunes back again. It should find them all again. Happens to me when I knock the power out of my external hard drive on a regular basis.
