    For the most part I had most of my music on CDs, so I've imported all the songs I want onto iTunes.

    However, some songs I have are just on my computer itself...so I've figured out that you do File, Add file to library.

    Now does that make a copy of it in iTunes, so you have it in 2 places then? Or does it just play from the location on the computer. Because I thought I could just add all the songs to iTunes, then delete them outta the files on my Desktop.
    But when I did that, iTunes said it could not find the song, or something like that? So do you have to keep the files all in a folder still somewhere on your computer?

    do they show up in ur itunes libaray with an exclamation point next to them and just not play?

    if so, this is caused by moving the music files after syncing them the first time
