To hybridfan....yes...the itunes info shows the correct address and plays the song but when I open that folder it is empty. When I look at the "previous version" of said folder the songs are there so something is hiding them.

So the restoration of the username folder failed....I copied the music and pictures I needed onto my backup drive. I am going to do a repair off of my install disc and if that fails I will do a fresh install. If anyone sees this again or finds a fix please let me know.
