    Can anyone throw out ideas as to what happened? Here's what I did:

    iMac 10.8.?
    iTunes 11

    Menu item "Add to Library".
    Selected 8 WAV files from a folder on my NAS.
    Clicked "Open" button.
    Nothing happened.

    Tried it again, but this time the folder the WAV files were in is now gone. What happened? Does Apple hate WAV files, try to convert them, and then failed, but instead of giving me my files back it destroyed them? Thats all I can think that happened.

    Makes no sense.

    Before importing them to iTunes, I would convert .wav files to .mp3 format, using All2MP3.

    FWIW, I tried the same thing from my NAS (with 4 WAV files rather than 8) and iTunes 11 did import them properly and left them alone on the NAS.

    There were no progress messages and no messages that it was complete.

    What iTunes did do was assume that all the files I selected belonged to the same "Album," and so they all ended up in "Unknown Album."

    I can't account for the NAS deletion, but is there any chance that they're actually in iTunes but under some unexpected name?
