I have 11,000 songs - they are all on an external hard drive. Itunes knows to look to that hard drive. However, when I download new music, I have noticed if I don't save the new music to the hard drive, it will erase all 11,000 songs and only show the new.


I downloaded 40 songs, saved them to the downloaded folder and later drug them into Itunes. All 11,040 songs showed. The next morning I woke up and there were only 40 songs in my library. Where did my 11,000 go?


This has happened before and I have redirected Itunes to the external, but have had to wait for all 11,000 to download again and then had to resync my ipod. That is not practical.

iPod touch, Windows XP
