iTunes Won't Add New Songs - June 8th 2012, 08:55 PM

Basically my iTunes was working perfectly fine until a couple of nights ago but not it won't let me add any new songs that I've downloaded or gotten off CDs. It let me buy a song, but it won't let me add anything that wasn't on iTunes. Not sure if it matters, but it only started doing this after I tried adding about 170 songs. It shows that I'm dragging the item to iTunes, but instead of getting a "can't move that here" warning or whatever, it looks normal like it should be taking any items I try to add.

Hopefully that made sense. Any suggestions? I already uninstalled & reinstalled it, which didn't do anything. I even updated the version, nothing.

Why herro dere Barb
1. Did you change any of the settings without realizing what you did.
2. Can you go File>Add to Library and then get your music that way or do you have to drag and drop? Yeah, it's annoying but also Ctrl+O gets to the Add to Library dialogue.
3. Make sure the folder that you are dragging the files from is NOT a "read-only" folder. To find out if it is a read only folder, right click, properties, and make sure the read-only check box is unchecked, also make sure that the individual files are not "read-only" files...

Let me know if any of those help

Already checked or tried both of those, nothing. I've never had this problem before & it's a major pain since I'm always getting new music.

Did you try reinstalling iTunes? All your music shouldn't have to be re-added if it's on your computer, iTunes saves it and such...BLAH. GOOGLE YOU FAIL ME.
Are you drag and dropping from a folder that's on your computer or on your hardrive?

I already reinstalled iTunes. & I'm dragging it from my external hard drive, which I have been doing for a few years now with no problem.

I got my iTunes to work. Apparently all of the files I was trying to add were corrupt. Fail. Anyways, thanks! This can be closed.
