Preserving play data
Authored by: Schmolle on Nov 18, '05 04:48:03AM

Or ... you can circumvent all that iTunes pretends to know about your disk(s) and do the following:

  1. Shut down iTunes
  2. empty the 'iTunes Library' file
  3. modify the 'iTunes Library.xml' file as per your moved files
  4. Start up iTunes.

iTunes (on Windows, at least; can't say that I have tested on Mac) recognises that something Bad(tm) has happened and makes a very good attempt at restoring the database file from it's XML counterpart.

Full instructions (sadly Windows-centric) on this page.
