This IS a complete applescript. The structure — "on adding folder items..." — indicates it is set up to be run as a folder action. The script needs to be attached to a folder — when items are dropped in the folder, the script will add them to iTunes.

But, jf4m, that's the extent of the script — it just adds the items to iTunes. This script in its current form has no way of knowing which part of the hierarchy you are trying to add an item to. So, basically, it does exactly the same as drag-dropping the files straight onto the iTunes icon in your dock (except it won't automatically start playing them).

I expect the script was originally written to work with a download folder (ie. items are added to iTunes at download — without the need to drag-drop)

Hope that helps a little.
