I set iTunes to "Keep iTunes Media folder organized" and to "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" because I prefer to keep my music consolidated, organized, and consistent. However, when I have MP3s that are external to iTunes, then try to add via File > Add Folder to Libary, iTunes creates 2 copies of the file in the iTunes folder - one with the original song name and another with the original song name followed by the number 1.
Here is what I thought would happen, and I hope is possible:
1) Click File > Add Folder to Library
2) Select folder external to iTunes
3) Click OK
4) iTunes creates a clean new folder in the iTunes Music directory with exactly 1 of each file
5) Only 1 of each song is shown within iTunes
Is this too much to ask?
I am not an iTunes fan at all after 2 years dealing with the poor programming of this application. I hope someone can help me find the faith...
