I am not sure I understand what you mean. If you start a playlist you
are usualy doing this because you want to play the files, don't you?
If all or a large number of entries are not accessable then I don't know
for what reason someone would want to start it (other than by accident).

What do you do with a playlist on the jukebox which contains paths to a
drive on the computer? You can only use it if the jukebox is connected
to the computer and then it works ok, no beeps. But maybe I am missing
something here.

And to avoid excessive beeps there could be only one beep per playlist.
You would not know which entry is wrong anyway so it would be only
to inform that you should have a closer look. Maybe a standard mp3 file
named 'WrongEntry.mp3' or so could serve for this. Everybody could
adapt it if desired.
