Where is your music stored?

If it is on the computer you will need to get iTunes to search for it and add it to your music library.

If the music is stored on a mobile device then you will need to sync the music from the device to your computer.

Thanks Pete for checking. I started to try to follow the instructions and couldn’t find where to ask iTunes to search for all of my music and then had to leave the next morning on business and I still haven’t been home to follow thru. I will however get on it as soon as possible and if you have any ideas for me as to how to ask iTunes to search for my music I’d appreciate that. m

1. Open the iTunes application, go to “File” and select “Add Folder to Library.” The Add to Library window opens and displays your hard drive’s folders.

2. Move to the Library pane on the left side of the window and find the folder containing audio files you wish to include.

3. Click that folder and then click “Select Folder.” ITunes searches that folder for media files and adds them to your library.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
