    Can you copy the folder full of music onto your Mac HD and then try...

    What version of iTunes are you running? If you have the latest version, then navigate to User > Music > iTunes > iTunes Music and then paste you folder in the Automatically Add To iTunes folder.

    Check your iTunes preferences to make sure that it's configured to copy music into the iTunes library on import

    I got my music into my iTunes by using a memory stick also and all I had to do was drag the music off of the memory stick and into iTunes.

    If the files are already MP3 then you need no settings to be changed, they should just drag and drop.

    What's the source of the MP3s? Are they from a ripped CD? Another iTunes account, another music service (Amazon etc).

    Just wondering if they have DRM protection applied to them?

    OK....... can you bring up a Get Info window on one of the files and post the screen shot?

    So they could be WMA? That would explain everything!

    You can drag unprotected WMAs into iTunes. It converts them to AAC (by default)


    edit: Actually . . . scratch that. I think that only works in the Windows version
