itune playlist

Hello,

I just reset my PC and reinstall iTunes. I backup and restore the "iTunes Music Library.xml" in the itunes folder on the c drive. I opened my iTunes, all the playlist is there but some of the songs where not found. I looked at the xml file and the location of the music file is upposed to be on the L drive but it is pointed to the C drive. I changed it but when I closed it, it changed it back to the C drive. I have 200 songs but 100 of them cannot be found.  If I manually locate them one by one, it will then work. Which xml file should I change the location so that I don't jhave to repeat the same thing 100 times. Thanks

Is the L drive a local drive, or a network drive?

I personally copy the entire iTunes directory to the music library when backing up iTunes and then put it back in place before re-installing.

L drive is my second hardrive on my PC. Everything worked fine before I reformat the PC. When I restore the playlist, everything is there except that some of the song could not be located. I don't understand because some of the songs are in the same directory as the ones that work.

You may have to delete your entire library and then add the music directory manually by using File>Add Folder To Library.

Then perhaps your playlists will work.  Worst case here, as long as you have your music backed up is that you may have to manually re-create your playlists.

iTunes is strange like that sometimes.  I highly recommend keeping a iTunes full folder backup regularly if you have/use a lot of music.
