Help me force iTunes to not lost my songs!

iTunes filter: I store all my MP3s on an external hard drive, and iTunes is set to automatically sync my iPhone whenever I plug it in. Everything works fine, except when I'm traveling without my external hd and I plug in my iPhone. If I do that, the next time I check my iTunes all the songs that are on the iPhone have a gray exclamation point next to them. Help!

After this happens, I have to go through and click each song, individually, so iTunes will "rediscover" them. I've tried to select all the missing tracks and change something non-essential in the info in hopes of forcing iTunes to find the songs again, but that doesn't work.
Does anyone have any suggestions other than "turn off auto-sync?" Thanks!
