Syncing music on iTunes does help you get your music on all your iOS devices. But are there other ways to help add or import songs to iTunes? Yes, some solutions can help you.

To know the methods, you must read this article until the end. In this post, we will share three solutions to help you add music to iTunes. So, without wasting any more of your valuable time, let us begin.


How to Add Songs to iTunes by Drag-n-drop

With the rapid increase in music streaming apps and digital stores, we barely download any music from the internet. But what if we had to?

Add your songs or music to your iTunes, and sync it over all your iOS devices. Or you can use the drag-and-drop method.

Simple Steps to Add Songs to iTunes by Drag-n-Drop

  1. Find the location where you store your downloaded songs.
  2. Launch iTunes.
  3. From the main screen, click on File. Then from the available options, choose to Add to Library.

  1. A pop-up window will appear. This will help you navigate your hard-disk drive. First, head to the folder where you wish to move your songs.
  2. Choose your desired files, and click on Open. This will create a shortcut on your desktop.

  1. Choose the files, and ensure the My Music tab is opened.
  2. Drag the files into the window of iTunes.

Note: This is easy. But you are not moving any file, only adding a shortcut on your desktop. What if you are moving the original file to other locations? In this case, iTunes won't be able to find the files and won't play any of the moving songs.

How to Add MP3 to iTunes via Media Folder

The method mentioned above is pretty hassle-free. However, with this method, you may face issues. For instance, iTunes won't be able to find moving songs and play them. To avoid such issues, here is another solution you can try, and that is moving your music files to iTunes Media Folder.

Steps to Move MP3 to iTunes via Media Folder

  1. Launch iTunes, click on iTunes (for Mac) or Edit (for PC), and head to Preferences.

Import Music to iTunes from CD

What if I tell you that you can also import music from CD? Yes, it is possible too.

Steps to Import Music to iTunes from CD

  1. Launch iTunes. If using Mac, head to Preferences; if you use a PC, head to Edit, then head to Preferences.
  2. You will find different options in the drop-down section when the CD is inserted. Choose any of these options, Import CD or Ask to Import CD.
  3. Now apply your desired Import Settings.

  1. A pop-up window will appear; select Yes to begin the import. When done, your computer will notify you with a chime sound

Note: The import process's duration depends on four major factors. First, how speedy is your CD drive? Second, the settings you have applied for import. Third, the duration of the songs. And last, how many songs are there on the CD?
