    This has happened to me many times now. Certain .mp3 songs will not open in iTunes at all. I will double-click on them and iTunes will pop up, but the song will not appear in the Library. I have also tried dragging it into the library manually, but it still doesn't show up.

    I have read about this problem before, so it is not an isolated issue, however no one seems to have an answer that actually works. Some suggested changing the file to .mp4, but this doesn't work either.

    Can anyone please help with this??!

    This happens because of an incompatibility between iTunes 9.1.1 and certain ID3 tag versions. You're not alone in having this issue.
