Not all songs from my iTunes library are showing up in beaTunes 2.1.7. Not sure where to start...

    please check your beaTunes General Preferences and make sure they are
    pointing to the correct iTunes Music Library.xml file.

    Have you ever moved your library?

    Hi Hendrik - I keep my iTunes library files and songs on a Western Digital external drive - always have. BeaTune is pointed to this drive as well.

    Where you keep your songs is not relevant... only where iTunes writes
    the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file is.

    That's what I thought. I've verified that this is the library iTunes is using. I have songs added as recently as yesterday, but beaTunes is only showing songs added as of 7/2009...

    Did you try syncing from the beaTunes File menu?

    I did. It indicated that it was already synced. I uninstalled beaTunes and reinstalled. That seems to have fixed the problem.
