    I have a ***load of mp3 files on my computer(s)

    I've exhausted all menus in iTunes to try to import the songs I had before installing iTunes, but all attempts have failed so far.
    Any hints to how I can get all my (legally bought or ripped) mp3's into iTunes?????

    Simply drag and drop them (or a directory containing them) into your library, unless I'm missing something.

    I think you are, as I've already tried that.
    Even m4p files from my other computer won't play that way (even though the two computer download under the same licence)
    I can however use those files as long as I "import" them as folders. A tedious procedure, but at least it works eventually.
    Installing pure mp3 files though, is apparently an impossibility.

    Can you not create a sub-folder in your iTunes folder to drag them into?
    Mine is in My Docs.
    I had other m4p files, as well as mp3 took them over from one computer to the next and dragged them into the folder I created in my other computer and they worked fine.
    I had to login to iTunes to validate the license, but it was fine.........they all authorized and all of the mp3's transferred over just fine.

    Good luck.......

    I caress your solution, and would love it to work!
    However, for some reason my computer or computers I should say, does not approve that. Regardless of how I alter folder content or what have you, stupid iTunes refuses to recognize anything added to the folder itself!

    Hot darn the piece of ****. Ican only make it work through a pointed folder search, and then only purchased m4p files.
    There are no way of "search my computer for music files" nor any way to recognize mp3 files.

    Mind you, i can make it play mp3 files by double clicking them, but add them to my library is impossible.

    I've heard of an alternative - "Yamipod" - perhaps this will do what you want? Perhaps not, I've never used it, but have heard that it's pretty good.

    I would recommend amaroK, which digs iTunes into a grave, but it's Linux-only :-/

    Not that experienced with iTunes, however it sounds like yours are behaving less than normally...

    The only reason I'm using it, is that it's the only service (I know of) that lets you purchase individual songs legally over the net.
    Sadly, they encode them and hence forces you to use the stupid iTunes software to play them.

    There are a lot more legal music services out there. Microsoft has one, there is Napster, even Walmart.

    Just look around........

    Thanks, I'm falling behind on this technology.
    I will definately check them out.

    Do they the same broad selection of artists as iTunes have?
