Hi and Welcome to Justanswer
FOllow these steps:
Open the iTunes program. Go to "File" and click "Add Folder to Library."
Hope this helps.
My apology for being so long in responding. I tried to print the page with my case number XXXXX it but found my printer wasn't working. In tryiing to resolve that I lost the page and have also spent the last 6 hours with Netgear to solve the printer problem.
My follow up question to you is that the playlists that I want to copy over are not identified as playlists in the MYMusic folder. I have numerous playlists in windows that I want to copy to iTunes, but how do I get them to a file for selecting by iTunes?
Save the songs in windows media player in a playlist, but change the playlist type to M3U.To do this you can use the "Save Playlist As" option from the list pane when you're editing the playlist. Then change the "Save as type:" field from WPL (the default) to M3U. then open the folder that you saved the playlist in and drag it into iTunes.
See if it helps.
Note:some of the WMA files may not transfer so you might have to convert them to mp3 with a program like switch .

In the Contents pane (the left pane), expand the My Playlists category, and then click a playlist.
On the File menu, click Save Now Playing List As (Save Playlist As in Windows Media Player 9 Series), click Save as type, and then click M3U Playlist(*.m3u).
In the File name box, type a file name for the M3U playlist, and then click Save.
I saved as type, then clicked M3u playlist. In the file name box a typed the name of the playlist and then clicked save.
When I went to my documents to find the My Playlist I had saved it to, it was not in there, and I can't find it. I can find My Playlist under My Documents with a few other playlists in it, but the one I just saved was not there.
I went back through the process but instead of saving to the "My Playlist" folder I found another folder in MY DOCUMENTS titled just "Playlist". I found my copied playlist in that folder along with some others that had been saved there.
So I went back to the iTunes File menu and Clicked Add Folder To Library. Then went to the "Playlist" Folder. It would not let me select just the last playlist I copied there. SoI had to copy all the playlists in that folder to the iTunes library.
It processed for quite a while then brought up an iTunes screen with what looks like "All" of my Windows Media file songs, but I didn't find the playlist I wanted or the others that were in the Playlist folder with it.
I had hoped it would save them in the iTunes playlist window. I really don't want to rebuild all of my WMP playlists in iTunes.
But, are you absolutely sure about that? If you are I will consider the case closed and pay the fee, though considering how I asked the first question it seems you could have provided this answer immediately.
This is very important to me in using iTunes instead of WMp, and a huge dissapointment if it can't be done.
What format are you referring to? iTunes has playlist just like WMP. I realize the recording format is different, but that's convertible.
