    i'm a newbie, and was just wondering.... if I import my "music" folder to my itunes library, then later I add new songs to my music folder... am I supposed to just select those specific new songs to add to the library next time, or can I just select the music folder again and will it know that it shouldn't import duplicates??

    Is there a way that I can have one folder that automatically imports to the itunes library whenever I put new songs in it?

    Regarding your 1st question iTunes recognises duplicates so wont import them again.

    As far as your 2nd question goes i would like to know if this is posible too :)

    AppleScript is your friend here, regarding question #2. What you need is a Folder Action. A quick Google search revealed this, which should suit your needs perfectly.
