    Default iTunes can't find song in library

    I've only had iTunes for a year or so, so every song I have is stored in a seperate folder as well as being in my itunes library. Recently, some songs I have tried to play through itunes (and have played previously) come with a pop up saying that it couldn't be played because it couldn't be located and it ask me if i want to find it. I click yes and it opens the My Music folder commonly found on the start up menu, I don't save my music there so I go to where it is located and open it and than itunes plays it. Quite a pain in the butt and it is usually the same 10 or 15 songs. So I have 2 questions for this, how do I stop this and why would itunes have to "locate" the song? I assumed that once the song is in the library, it stays there. I don't know if this helps, but I download my music from a different source, where I send it to my seperate music folder and then send it to itunes. So I basically have an itunes library and a music folder that are almost identical.

    try deleting the song from the itunes playlist, then importing/adding the folder that the song is located in. It looks like its having issues with finding a path.

    wait but who makes this crappy itunes software? i don't get why they couldn't just have made ipods to be a usb device to just drag and drop songs on the hard drive. yes i know that there are alternatives but i wish it was just like that out of the box.

    Remember, most people are dumb. Force the masses who don't know about alternatives to use iTunes and you get a lot of people who will use the program to buy music. A few cents per song (or whatever Apple's take is) adds up to a whole lot.

    Anyone who buys music online is a retard in the first place, iTunes or not. I use iTunes exclusively, never have bought a damn thing from the store and never will. Strangely though, it syncs with my iPOD and plays my mp3s just fine. All 180 gigs of them...
