so you went to file->Add folder to library, and then selected your "Music" folder (shown below), and nothing happened? And you are absolutely sure that's where your music is located?






If so, i can't think of any reason why it wouldn't import the folder. Unless someone else has any ideas, i would resommend uninstalling iTunes from your computer, redownloading the setup file from Apple, and reinstalling it from the new file.

I was hoping to recreate my iTunes music and playlists on this vista computer I have just got
i do not have my old xp computer now
What I did was copy all my songs to an external Also the library files
Now I have Vista I have put all my songs into the music folder
Then deleted the new library file and added the old one
It found all the songs with the library file But they all went as I clicked in iTunes
I do not let iTunes manage my music and don't want my music in iTunes folder
Is that clearer?

But not only cant I recreate my iTunes library I cant import anything at all!

i have already uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes again
Just stuck
