    Hi Gary,

    are you using an iTunes-based library or a directory-based library (you had to choose when you first installed beaTunes)?

    Thanks,

    Weird - as that would be a clear indicator for a directory based library.
    You can check by opening the beaTunes preferences.
    The first item in the "General" pane tells you the base of the music library.
    Does the name start with "iTunes" or with "Filesystem"?

    Thanks,

    It does start with filesystem...my itunes music folder is saved on an external hard drive

    Any tips?

    That means it's a filesystem/directory based library.
    If you are using iTunes, I'd recommend to create an iTunes-based one.

    It's pretty simple: in the general preferences pane under the name of the library are two buttons: Plus and Minus.
    Click on the Plus one and select "iTunes based library" the rest is self-explanatory.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Gray,

    It's typically ~/Library/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.xml - even when your music files are on an external drive. If it's not there, use Spotlight to search for iTunes Music Library.xml or iTunes Library.xml.

    Thanks,
