Every file skips

I have added my songs to the library, click on an album to put it in the playlist, it does so and then just continually loops through the songs playing none of them. Just skips immediately without playing anything. The files are all on an external drive (that is connected and working fine, I can access from other things) and it has previously worked fine with this exact setup. Just for some reason now it won't play anything, no error messages or anything.

Sounds like the drive letter used by your External Drive has changed since you added the files to the Media Library.

If you disconect an external drive there is no guarantee that it will be assigned the same letter next time you plug it in, especially if you have other devices like thumbdrives etc.

Right click on one of the files in the Media Library > View file info ...
Is the current drive letter still the same as when you added it ?

One thing you might try.

Plug in your external drive.
Go to Computer Managment and change the drive letter to something high up the alphabet like S:
Add your files to the Media Library.

Next time you plug in it should take S: again and not be bounced off by something else.
