    Hey, I'm looking through my old HD backups and found some old songs I want back into my itunes library. I copied them into the itunes folder but they still aren't showing up in itunes unless I manullay play each one. What can I do?

    You need to import them (you can do the entire folder at once). From the file menu, or the keyboard shortcut is cmd+o .

    how do you do the entire folder at once? when I do import I can only choose the songs and not the folders themselves.

    You should be able to just drag the whole folder into iTunes.
