iTunes will recognize and remember as man hard drives as you have and 
add simultaneously. The idea that it only knows one must be some sort 
of urban legend. You tell iTunes where to put ripped CDs in the 
Advanced Preference Pane. You can CHANGE this location any time you you 
like. It will continue to remember all the previous locations where all 
the songs already in your library are located.

When you delete a song from the library it is only an ALIAS you are 
removing. You must go to the file in the folder of the album to delete 
the FILE if you really want to delete a song from your hard drive.
