The problem is I don't want to copy all of the music files. I thought I could get away from doing this with an app designed to add it to the iTunes.

The junction link worked, but unfortunately iTunes completely mutilated my carefully arranged collection that winamp relies on. ugh

@dcsev - I use Link Shell Extension for this - http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/linkshellextension.html
I keep my music on an external drive and just create a hardlink to the music folder on C:. Works great for me.

It doesn't give the tray alerts but is easy and simple.


i actually tried a junction link and it works, but now I'm running into another problem!  iTunes doesn't my m3u files  and has removed them from each in a new folder called D:\Music\ Not Added.
This has obviously ruined my Winamp setup that uses Album List to pull m3u files and present the CDs in their original playlist orders.

Without question, iTunes is the worst piece of softwar eApple has ever released.

Any chance of getting a lightweight app to do this?

The powershell seems like an inelegant solution. Might have to do the junction links, but I have no idea how iTunes will handle it. I don't keep itunes running 24/7 - only when I want to sync music to my phone.

I didn't think of that. I suppose I could use a hard junction link to sync the directories without running the app.  I'll try this and see if it works.

Hi all,
I am sure if this is within the scope of DC, but it's worth a shot and it seems people all over the Internet want something like this. I can't believe no one has coded anything that currently works on the Internet for this.   The closest thing I've found is called "iTunesFolderWatch" located here: http://albumbrowser.klarita.net/itfw.html, but it's not maintained, costs $, doesn't work, requires .NET 2.0 which i'm finding is difficult to find on the Internet, and most importantly NOT portable.

Basically, a lot of people like me keep their music in D:\ directory instead of the standard C drive just in case they need to reinstall. Unfortunately, iTunes does NOT allow you to "automatically" add music to its library, unless you use a very specific folder deep in the C drive.

Asks:
1. Program must watch a specific folder(s) and automatically adds the music to the iTunes library (like this pic: http://albumbrowser.klarita.net/itfw3.png)
2. Must be lightweight
3. Must be able to minimize in tray
4. MUST be portable (pretty please!). All settings should be contained within the folder.


Is this a proper ask?
