While trying to figure out the problem I stumbled on the action "Consolidate Tracks"; this action can be found after selecting a track by holding down the control key and clicking the mouse. This method does copy the tracks from my old media folder to the new media folder on the G-Drive. I don't know why this method works and the "Consolidate Library" method found under the file menu does not work.
Any thoughts out there?G5, Mac OS X (10.5.6)

I've tried with the external disk attached via USB and via Airport Extreme, but no luck. Any insights Apple folks?eMac G4, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

Currently Being ModeratedJan 20, 2010 3:45 PM (in response to sl55amguy)Okay, I figured out what was going on for me. The issue was that iTunes did not know how to handle an iTunes LP album thingie. I could select all of the tracks in my Library, right-click to Consolidate Tracks, and it would give me the error. Then I could select everything EXCEPT the iTunes Albums (ending in ".itlp"), right-click Consolidate, and bingo it works.
Does Apple read these things?20 iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

Currently Being ModeratedMay 15, 2010 3:49 PM (in response to Lucas Haley)I encountered the same problem today. Thanks for the pointer.
I purchased an album from iTunes - I don't recall what they call the product - LP view perhaps? It is the one with the liner notes and such. Anyway some of the the files in this folder have a .itlp suffix. If I skip this album the rest moves fine.
So basically first run a find to locate any folder/album with the offending suffix. Then select your entire iTunes library. Then un-select the items associated with the offending album. Then right click and select consolidate. That should work.
I did not do exactly this. Since I have a large library I selected 10-15,000 songs at a time and chose consolidate. This also works.Dual 2.5 GHz PPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 22, 2010 3:10 PM (in response to sl55amguy)The .itpl files are the problem and I believe you can safely delete them. I did so with mine (then I emptied the trash since it still wanted to use them) and my library has finally moved.
I did make a back up of the .itpls to be safe, but it doesn't seem to need them.G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

Logged in just to say, thank you. Thank you so much. I've been troubleshooting this for hours and this seems to be fixing it (Copying files atm). I was really confused because i was moving 70gb of files to a 1tb HDD.
