    itunes wont automatically add your music just by saying where its stored and hoping it will move it to the right place.

    i'd imagine it would work if you do this..

    reset itunes music folder location under the advanced tab in preferences and check the 2 boxes underneath.

    double click your internal drive and drag the itunes folder into your library.

    itunes will then copy it to your music folder and will be visible in itunes.
