Using Win. XP

It was fine up until now when I opened iTunes (stored on my external), & I got an iTunes "Music Home page". Not my library of songs as usual.
I do still see the actual folder containing my songs within the iTunes program folder. (ie: iTunes Media), just nothing on the interface all of a sudden & it won't let me click in the search field.

What happened? How do I make them reappear? Tried rebooting, updating, etc. At a loss & no one on even *Apple's* forum is answering. :ranting:
(All songs are also in my iPod too)

Hi runwiththewolf
It may be that your location for storing your media libraru has been set back to the c drive default. This happens every time you open itunes without your external hard drive being connected. You could try the followinhg to change where itunes looks for you music:

With your external hard drive connected, go to itunes; choose Edit; Preferences; Advanced; then go to Itunes media location and select Change, from here enter the location of your music on your external hard drive. Then OK and this should do it.

I hope it works for you.
Regards Tad
