Hello everybody. My mini has worked great until last week. I went to add a file to itunes and it took like 30min to take. The pinwheel just went nuts. I have 4 external drives. But the itunes folder is on the main drive. Any suggestions? It is a large library but never had a problem until now. Itunes is now very slow and skips on songs and is freezing. The mini is a 2.0 c2duo w leopard. Should I start over and reformat or can I fix it?
Thanks, Mike

Try repairing permissions on your main drive and see if that helps.

Try removing the file you added and reboot. Then try deleting the iTunes plist.
