YAIT: Question about iTunes libraries

I'm an iTunes user, but I'm pretty much at the low end of the curve with regard to all the ins-and-outs and how it stores music on my machine.

My question is fairly basic. Prior to going the iTunes route (a couple of Touches came into the house within the last couple of years) I kept all of my mp3s in a single folder on my desktop's HD.

iTunes appears to replicate those files and store them in my "library", correct? So these tunes are in two places on my HD?

So it is logical then that I could store my original mp3 folder on my external or somewhere. Right?

The reason is that I'm trying to free up some space on my desktop HD.

Other than backup purposes, there's no reason to keep the mp3 folder around.

Re: YAIT: Question about iTunes libraries

Anyone know why my Ipod (5th gen 120gb), at times, won't display the album artwork, even tho it is clearly there when I look through my library on iTunes from the computer?
