Import music files into iTunes

by on March 1, 2010

Q: How do I transfer music from my USB drive into iTunes?

A: There are two ways you can do this. The first is to just select all the music files you want to transfer and then drag them into iTunes. iTunes will then import them for you. You do, however, need to remember that by default iTunes makes a copy of all files and puts them into its own database of songs. This could lead to problems if you have limited hard drive space and you already have the songs on your hard drive.

The other option would be to open iTunes and then go to File -> Add to Library… and then select your music folder. This will add all music files in that folder into your iTunes. The same warning above applies here as well in terms of duplicate songs on your hard drive.
