Mac OS X 10.3 Mac OS X 10.4
A. For these older versions of the OS, search your entire hard drive (not just your 'Home' Folder) for "Apple Loops Index" and delete the contents of any folders that show up. Then drop your folder(s) of loops onto the loop browser so GB can re-index them...

Mac OS X 10.5
Under Mac OS X 10.5.x (and later) an additional step is required because Spotlight will not search certain folders unless explicitly told to do so. Look at the first three images in this tutorial to see how to force Spotlight to do the search. Then search the Library folder in your Home directory as well as the one at the root level of your Hard Drive for "Apple Loops Index". Delete the contents of any folders that show up. Then drop your folder(s) of loops onto the loop browser so GB can re-index them.
