Restoring Music Files off ext HD onto PB?

Hey guys,
I want to return my music files to my PB. I find not having my library on my laptop not good. No mobility.
I have returned the files to my Library no problem. I also changed the directory in Prefs.
So the deal is no files are playable unless my ext HD is plugged in. I consolidated my Librbary....
anyone have a tip. getting frustrated.


My bad... I understand. I have. Am I being a jerk here. lol
Opi is my HD, I am Donniedarko, the rest is the path??
not happy:(
