I'm a recent switcher, and a little anal about organization of files. I had it down on my Windows machine, but I'm a little confused about the mac. I downloaded an album via torrent, and it's sitting in my Downloads folder. What is the proper way to import to iTunes? Can I just drag and drop into iTunes? I want my music consolidated in one folder, instead of spread all around the hard drive. Do I have to manually move the folder to the iTunes Music folder, then import to make sure it's all straight?

Am I making sense?
QUOTE Thanks

Just open the folder that the separate songs are in and double click on one. The song should be sent directly to iTunes. From there, you can edit/control/manage the information of the song, album, etc.

or you could make a folder on itunes for the songs, and just drag the downloaded folder to that location

Mac is like a car, keep clean and up to date and it will give you many hours of good driving
