I have done the "add folder to library" in itunes to add my mp3 rocket folder, but it adds it under "shared" in itunes rather than the library. I can play files from here but I can't drag the file to my iphone, which is what I really want to do. I think the file has to be in the library for me to be able to drag it to my phone, but I can't drag the file to the library either. I am using the newest version of iTunes for Windows, I think it's 11.0.1.

I always turn off the add my songs to itunes, and i always move the songs to a sorting folder until i retag all the metadata before moving the songs to folders for each genre and then each artist etc. Nothing ever gets lost. Later i can add to itunes library or SAM Audio Broadcaster library (a disc jocky software). You never know if the mp3 rocket folder may be deleted during an uninstall and update. Also you can turn on a add to my itunes library upon download in the settings.
<p>Many people have more than one iPod or iPhone. Some families
have several members who all have their own separate iPod / iPhone. The iTunes
software is configured to synchronize content with one player, but the software
can be configured to synchronize multiple players on one computer. To
synchronize multiple players, you can set iTunes to a different library for
each user to create. This will allow each user their own music and video
libraries, which he then syncs with your players to adjust. Or you can set
iTunes to share it with the same content for each user. <br />
<p>Configure multiple libraries on the same computer <br />
<p>1. Hold down the "Shift" key on your keyboard when
you open iTunes on your Start menu. <br />
<p>2. Select "Create Library" dialog box that

<p>3. Name the new library or an alternative that opens (for
example, the library iPod Jake). <br />
<p>4. Select "Edit" in the iTunes interface, and
select "Preferences". <br />
<p>5. Click the "Advanced" tab and check "Copy
files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library." Press
"OK". <br />
<p>6. Add specific files to iTunes library. Click the
"File" menu and select 'Add File to Library ". After you have
added your particular iTunes library, connect your iPod / iPhone to your
computer with the USB cable and download files manually, or auto-sync. <br />
<p>Share iTunes library content with multiple users <br />
<p>1. Quit iTunes, find the iTunes library folder on your
computer. Click the Start menu and select "Computer." Double click on

Step 1: an itunes account ? b> An iPod is a portable media player that lets users listen to music wherever they are. Before you can listen to songs on the iPod, you must first put music onto the device. If you have been using different MP3 players in the past, adding music to an iPod can be slightly confusing. The reason for this is that iPods are not compatible with Windows Media Player, Real Player or Winamp. By using iTunes, however, you can add music to any iPod.
• Open iTunes. • 2 Add music to iTunes. To do this, click "File." Choose "Add Folder to Library." Then, find the folder on your computer that holds the music you wish to put onto the iPod. Highlight that folder and click "OK." The music will be put into the iTunes Library. • • 3 Plug the iPod into the computer. After a few seconds, you will see the iPod listed under "Devices" on the left-hand side of iTunes. • 4 Click "Music" under the "Library" option on the left-hand side of iTunes. All of the music files in the iTunes Library will then be shown in the middle of iTunes. • 5 Double-click the album that contains the music you want to put onto the iPod. The songs on that album will then be listed. • 6 Highlight the song you want to add to the iPod. • 7 Drag that file over to the name of your iPod located under "Devices" (as mentioned in Step 3). The song will then be placed onto the iPod. Do this for all of the music you want to put onto the iPod. • 8 Click the "All Albums" button at the top of iTunes to get back to the list of albums on the iTunes Library. • 9 Repeat Steps 5-7 until you are done putting music on the iPod. • 10 Disconnect the player when you are done.
If you open iTunes with the CD in the drive and click File - Add folder to library/Add file to library you should be able to find the CD containing the MP3's from there.

You need to use the Philips songbird software to transfer itunes music into your MP3 player. If your player doesn't use Songbird, you need to first convert it into MP3 format under itunes then transfer using windows media player 11 or higher.

You are going to want to add those files to your itunes library... The easiest way is to close out your limewire program... Make sure it is closed becuase it usaully starts up when the computer is on. In the tool bar you want to right click on the limewire icon and select exit. If you dont close the program some of the files are still being shared on the network. Now you will need to locate where the files were saved on your computer. They are usually located under My Documents and there should be a limewire folder. If this is the case then problem solved. Go to your I tunes and choose add file or folder to library ... a browser will open up go to my documents find the limewire folder and add it ...(you do this by clicking on it) then press the add button... this will pull your music into your itunes library. Be aware that some of the files you may have downloaded will be in different formats that itunes should convert. From here you can convert these to AAC format or leave them as Mp3. The AAC format is what apple uses as its format. If you convert them to AAC they will stay in your library no matter what you do with the original files. Before converting you might want to change your settings ... go to edit... prefrences...under general there is an import tab click on this and you can control the qaulity of the file... Choose the highest quality 320kbs... it will give you a larger file but the file will be cleaner. hope this helps
If you don't already have itunes on your computer you will need to go to www.apple.com and download the latest version. It is a free download with onscreen instructions that are fairly easy to follow. If you have difficulties with the download you may need to disable or shut off your anti-virus software for the download to complete properly.
I found a helpful article about adding music to itunes on the apple support page for you as well.

You can add audio files that are in AAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or Audible.com (.aa) format. If you have unprotected WMA content, iTunes for Windows can convert these files to one of these formats. Video content in QuickTime or MPEG-4 format can also be added to iTunes. To learn how to add these files to iTunes follow the steps below.
From the File menu, choose one of the following choices:
Add to Library
Add File to Library
Add Folder to Library
Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add
If iTunes is set to "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library", iTunes will copy all content that is added to the iTunes library to the iTunes Music folder. Then adjust this setting or change the location of this folder, go to the Advanced tab in iTunes preferences.
