Where are my itunes on my computer?

Okay, where are all the songs in my itunes library saved? I'm trying to make a ringtone and I need to upload a song. When I go to my music > itunes > itunes music there is nothing there. There are some empty folders though. gah.


This is where i got the idea to look:

all the folders are empty? what are the folders called?

has the "copy files to itunes music folder when adding to library" box always been checked?


you could also search the computer for the song name and see where it shows the file. (that is if the search on ms windows actually finds stuff for you )




other than that i dunno.

I tried search. I shows me where the file is supposed to be. It even gives me the icon to click on. The thing is, when I go to open the folders no songs are in them.

Ever thought of searching your computer for *mp3 or *m4a ?

I'd give that a try.

This happened to me recently and happens fairly often

the last time somehow the folders ended up on my desktop and I SWEAR I didn't move them but they were there

Are you getting the gray apostrophe next to the songs?

For the songs I uploaded from CDs myself, I go into My Documents, then My Music, then iTunes, then iTunes music. I'm not sure where the other songs are, though.

Maybe it would be quicker just to re-upload the song and save it to your desktop to make your ringtone?
