    .rar files are archive files…

    You need to extract the files before they can be imported into iTunes.

    Use UnRarX etc.

    Never heard of even pirated music coming in a .rar

    Seems counter intuitive when it comes to the nature of digital music files like mp3.

    I agree it seems strange however you would be surprised the number of people seeding torrents in RAR format, especially it seems popular for music ripped at 320k, just seems like a pain to me and it certainly is but hopefully this tip above will sort that out.

    It's not difficult to understand that uploading numerous files is much easier if you just put them in an archive, and upload the archive, rather than uploading one file at a time.
