So I got a new computer and before I unhooked my old one for good, I put all my itunes music on my external hard drive, including my limewire music but that's besides the point.

Anyways, I'm having problems getting my music from that hard drive to itunes permanently. The itunes is authorized but when ever I put the music in there and unplug the hard drive it says "Cannot find file". Obviously meaning that the songs aren't actually copying into the itunes music folder.

I'm tried Select All>Drag & Drop
Select All> Copy & Paste
iTunes> File> Import

None of these have worked

Some notes, using windows xp. Just not quite sure what how to get the songs on my computer and in itunes for good and to stay.
