I am using Windows XP Pro. I have a 1TB external hard drive that holds all of my iTunes music and is also a scratch disk for my Photoshop CS3.
This drive has always been E:
So my iTunes is looking for that drive when it tries to access any of the 20,000 songs on there. But it can’t find any, because now the drive is showing up as F.
The drive was unplugged for about 10 minutes, and I plugged in a new iPod which became E:
Now, no matter how many times I repoot, unplug the drive or the iPod, or both… no matter what order I replug them in after repooting, no matter what I seem to do, the drive is now F, and the iPod is E.
Is there anything I can do to fix this??
It will take hours to re-index my Music folder with iTunes. And then, even if I do that, there is potential for this to happen again in the future. What if I plug something else in and my drive permanently becomes G.
I dont want to have to keep changing everything that is looking for stuff on my E drive. I want to force this thing to be the E drive.
Is there a way to do this??
