As we know, iTunes is not only a media player for playing music and movies, iTunes is also a media library application which helps to download, save, and organize digital audio and video and helps to transfer media files from computer to iPod, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

However, sometimes we will encounter "can't add music to iTunes" issue in various situations:

  • Situation 1: Though iTunes announced to support MP3, AIFF, WAV, MPEG-4, AAC and Apple Lossless (.m4a), we often fail to import those called supported music formats (especially often failed to import MP3 to iTunes, or import WAV to iTunes.)
  • Situation 2: Can't add iTunes unsupported music formats to iTunes. In fact this is a normal phenomenon. But how wonderful if we can import those kind of music like FLAC, OGG, WMA, CAF, MP2, SHN, QCP, MPC, PCM, APE, AMR, AWB, AC3, AUD, RA and etc to iTunes!
  • Situation 3: After updated to iTunes 11, I cannot import any kind of audio to my new iTunes 11
  • Situation 4: Though we have successfully imported music to iTunes, iTunes failed to play them or failed to sync them to iOS devices like iPod, iPhone, iPad.
