Do you use iTunes at all?
The file could not be found would you like to relocate it ?
Im running rekordbox 1.5.1 and I have my music library on an external drive , I never change the location but Rekorbox can never find my tracks !!! what is the deal with that ?? I have to choose track by track the SAME location every time , sooo frustrating. anyone else have this problem ?
I do yeah , but Im reluctant to bring all my tracks into Itunes as it will take up too much space on my HD , I know I can point it to external HD , .... so why do you asK ?
Do you possibly have iTunes set to manage your music? If so and you've used it to change any of the artsist or album information, it will automatically move the files around, causing Rekordbox to not find them.
yes I use iTunes to manage my music i.e. rekordbox cant burn cd's thus I need itunes for this sort of functionality, so there is a good possibility that this is what happened. But is my only choiice to relocate track by track ? this is very time consuming.
You can go to File > Display All Missing Files and then use the Relocate button there; it will learn from the update path if you have moved a bunch to a new folder or drive, but it may still require manual interaction to help relocate them all.
Thank you Pulse Ive dont just that and relocated most of my files ...... but now .... ahem ... an album that I imported into Rekordbox yesterday , when I go to play a track it gives me the error message. 'cant load track:file not found'
so Im once again showing rekordbox the path.
whats the difference with this error message ?
If you didn't correct all files, then you may still have that error.
I failed to mention Pulse that these new tracks are not showing up when I choose' File > Display All Missing Files' . its just if I choose them randomly,
its so have to find all these tracks as yoiu can imagine I have them in may different folders , single tracks etc
is there not an easier method to relocate these files if they are not showing under 'display all missing files' ?
I've been having these same issues. Any solution?
