    Let me start by saying i used to use limewire. when i downloaded an mp4 i would just drag it from the limewire window into my itunes movies window and it would copy. now im downloading from other places.. the files are mp4 and i open up the file they are in a drag them over (the itunes screen gets a blue border when holding them over) but when i let go nothing happens. am i doing something wrong why won't this work?
    thanks

    Ps sorry about the spelling im just kinda in a hurry
