    You tool! :D

    In the Advanced pane of iTunes' Preferences, there's an option to toggle whether iTunes copies tracks to the iTunes Music Folder. :)

    additionally, why not just put all the songs in iTunes, toss the windows folder or whatever it is with the original songs after that. You then have them all in the iTunes library as well as in the actual HD library.
