Can't add new music to iTunes 11

I've got some .mp3's in my download folder and they will not show up in my library no matter if I drag and drop, go to File>Add to Library, or even if I double click to play the song. Anyone else having this problem? No clue what to do.

same here. I quit iTunes. opened it up. still wasnt there. this was in album view or even by searching.

had a look in my smart folder for 'new music' and there is was!

Searched again and it would show up in the search but if i went back to album or song view etc... nothing.

Took a few mins and then it decided to show up....
rather odd.

seemed that itunes was just a bit slow at updating the DB

I can't add .mov files, or play .mov files that are already in the library. They open in QT, and they worked fine in iTunes 10. I'm hoping it's a bug, but considering that they took away options in the interface, I wonder if they just decided to drop support for some older codecs?

Signing out worked for me. As soon as i went back to my library after signing out the music I had added (one folder, 23 songs) was there. I do not use iTunes match

Convert to AIFF

I used an app called SWITCH to convert the mp3 to AIFF and iTunes accepted it. It's not practical but it works.

iTunes match

It seems to be al problem with iTunes Match. When adding a song I saw the cloud icon 'loading' and it wouldn't stop. So I signed out of iTunes Match, restarted iTunes and only then I was able to add new songs.

Fix

I had this issue, just sign out, add music, sign back in and it works. When I did it, I didn't have to re-add anything, just searched and it worked.
