    Has anyone else had an issue with loading movies with the new iTunes. I have been burning my DVD’s with Handbrake and creating a digital DVD library. Once a DVD is digitized on my computer I drag it into iTunes and it appears in my movie library and also as a folder and movie on my hard drive.

    Now with the new iTunes, my previous movies are the same as before, but when I Handbrake a new movie and drag it into iTunes they now appear in a sub folder called “Home Movies” and in my hard drive they are also in a separate location as well. I cannot figure out how to add them iTunes and have them listed and filed with the rest of my movies. I haven't tried to synch with my iPad yet to see if this results in any other issues.

    Anyone experienced this?

    not sure if there is an option in Handbrake to fix this

    but it seems with iTunes 11 all movies manually added go to the Home Movies section, you need to right click and get info then change the kind to Movie (or TV Show)
