    iTunes help!

    Ive been using iTunes for ages, and as a reult my library has 3205 songs in it. The problem is that Ive moved the location of a lot of these songs and as a result the library struggles to find them all.

    I was wondering if there was a function so that iTunes can scan the library and pick up all the songs that it cant find the file for, and remove them. So that I can rescan my root folder and add in all these new songs without creating duplicates of the old files?

    Sorry if the description is a bit unclear lol

    I think you can either select all the artists or albums, delete them, and then re-search for your library... make sure that if it asks to delete the files click no!!

    Hope this helps.

    Ahhh, or try playing a song, if it doesn't find it, it may search for it, do this on a couple of songs and I think it will ask if you want to rescan your library. give that a go...

    Ah yes, I forgot that it would auto promt to rescan the library. I think I disabled that though. (Doh!) Isnt there a option hidden in the menus to do this? I cant seem to locate one.

    The major problem with going through song by song is that I have thousands, hundreds of which I fear will be missing :-D

    Think I may have solved it, Just clicked add a folder to library; Like I would normally. Clicked on the main directory with all the music and it says its processing my library and the the warning icons are popping up next to bad songs, hopefully it will clear them off and replace them!

    +Rep for the help spann3rs
