How do I get rid of the exclamation mark next to the songs I copied to iTunes?
Locating Missing Tracks in iTunes
The exclamation point next to a title in iTunes means that iTunes cannot locate the song associated with that title (original file cannot be found).
If you think that the songs marked with exclamation points can still be located somewhere on your hard drive, you may be able to correct their media file path in iTunes as detailed below:
- Select a song with an exclamation point in iTunes.
- In iTunes, choose Edit > Get Info.
- Click on Locate file in iTunes.
- If you know the location of the track with an exclamation point, point iTunes to it and try to play your content.
