When you move files that Itunes is using you need to take them off your playlist and re add them. Some of the files you son may have downloaded and they should still transfer to that location you will just need to re-import them after you move them to that new hard drive. You may have to recreate your playlist but all your files should transfer to that drive. I would recommend you using NTFS for the file format. You also have to remember that the transferring of those files to the Ipod will be slower then when it was on the internal drive. It has to go through the USB connections twice.

I cannot access my itunes library on my macbook

Hi Tyler
Open up iTunes
Go to top menu "iTunes" then "Preferences"
Click on "Advanced" Cogwheel Icon
Take note of where your iTunes Library is currently being stored
Write it down.
Then check to see if your iTunes Library is located there.
Someone may have moved it.
The Default location is usually
/Users/"Home Folder Name"/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music
But.... you can change this to anywhere.... even another external hard drive or memory stick if you want.
Good Luck

Itunes messed up my external hardrive

I doubt that iTunes really moved/reorganized files on your computer.

iTunest may have created its own "Table Of Contents", presenting a "view" of all your files.

Open "My Computer" and open your external hard-drive.
The files should be in "your" order.

Open "My Documents". Open "My Music".
The files should be in "your" order.

If iTunes really did "reorganize" your files, there's no way to "go back", because "Windows System Restore" does not automatically created time-stamped backups of your 'My Documents' folder (nor of any external disk-drive -- where would it put that much data???).

Sansa Fuze MP3 Player - it is loading pictures to

Is it Loading Album Art? If this is the case, I don't think you'll be able to to stop it, Album art is typically very tiny in file size, and should have negligable impact on your available space. If it is syncing automatically to a folder, try moving any pictures in that folder somewhere else. This can probably be done with Album art as well, but you'll need to turn on the Setting "Show all Files (Including Hidden and System Files) in the Folder Options Dialogue box.

Loading itunes

Hi there,
Simple fix:
  • I'm sure you've already done this part but just for safeties sake go to the Apple site and download the very latest iTunes
  • Next press and hold the standby button. It will ask slide to turn off, do this.
  • Now press and hold both the Power and Home buttons together for about 10 seconds until the Apple symbol appears.
  • Now connect it to your PC.
  • If iTunes doesn't startup automatically or isn't already open then open it up.
  • Select the touch in the sidebar of iTunes then click on the Summary tab at the top of the main page.
  • Click “Check for Update.” iTunes tells you if there’s a newer version of the iPod touch software available.
  • Click Update to install the latest version of the software. Or click Restore to restore. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
For more info refer to pages 97, 104-5 & 111 of the user guide (also available from and the knowledge base article here

All the best

My IPod Does Not Seem to "See" My External Hard Drive

It sounds like the external hard drive might have been disconnected, which would cause iTunes to go crazy trying to find songs. iTunes was not developed to incorporate that kind of system, unfortunately. It likes all of its songs on the main hard drive where it sees them. There should be an option to "Consolidate Library" under the Advanced menu. That will move all of the songs into iTunes' set folder for music. Let me know what you find.

Simpletech 250gb hard drive

can you access the music with windows media player? If you can, itunes is corrupted as you moved the music to a new drive and itunes will only look for it in the itunes folder it sets up. Best option is reinstall itunes and it will find your music on the new drive.
