Moving songs from windows media player to iTunes
I thought this would be simple. Every search I've done says that go through itunes to add folder, simple enough. From what I've read it says that windows media automaticlly stores all the music in its library into MY Music folder. For what ever reason this is not the case here. Not sure if it matters, but my Mother in Law (whos computer and ipod I'm working with) says all of these songs are from Limewire. I don't think that would matter. Am I missing something easy? Is there a reason why her music isn't in My Music? What about using an external hard drive to kind of go the long wau around? Any help would be appreceated.

Limewire puts its files in a separate "shareable" folder, and they are probably all still in there.

Or, alternately, there might be a way to right click a track in WMP and see if there are any details or property options that will allow you to see the filepath of the songs there.
