I finally solved mine;
By right clicking on the files, I noticed some fields were empty - it may well be default for some of them as the copyright notice and artists etc were there, howeverI made absolutely 100% sure, the digital signatures were correct!
It was only by doing that, I could transfer the files.
The videos you are importing may be missing signatures, if that's the case add / ammend the details yourself;
ie: Date, Name, Contributing artist, Copyright should be set already, but things like that.
It was the ONLY way I could get them to import, if any field was blank - it wouldn't do it...( seems like a permissions error / fault within iTunes when importing, if there's any missing = no go )

Well...now I tried to synch and the new added files show up as blank screens (the "thumbnails") on my ipad. When I tap to play get error "the operation could not be completed".
So...they are now in itunes but not ipad....suggestions on how to fix synch??

Ok, I have tried almost every suggestion in this thread and nothing seems to work. Old computer went belly up. Bought new computer and loaded latest version of Itunes. 10.6 etc. Tried add music file that now resides on new computer from backup to itunes. I've pulled my hair out and I am now bald. Nothing I do seems to get itunes to show my old music library. I know you have all worked very hard helping others. Mabye you can help me figure out what I haven't tried that will work.

Nope, installed yet another program, still not fixed. This has been the easiest way for me to share video from me to my family as I reside overseas with the military. I have always used M4V files. Does anyone have an optional format for video i can use, I just don't have time to fool with this.
Bottom Line, Itunes worked with my homemade M4V files prior to 10.6, Itunes updated, now I can't load the files - Itunes and Apple needs to address this, but technicians and upper management stay away from this forum like rotten eggs while they profited 108 billion dollars last year! This wreaks of FoxConn, until the media gets involved, this will not get fixed - period!
I'm a part time Videographer/Photographer and artist, I own $9,000 dollars worth of Apple products, when I call support they could care less! 1 $5,000 Mac Pro Quad, 3 IMacs, IPad, and 2 IPod touches in my family of 5. I'm not saying this to brag, all I want is for Apple to show the same commitment to me as I have to them, I feel this is a fair request.
Again, they could care less!
This is simply Infuriating!

i am having the same issue. Movies purchased do not show up in the movies tab in itunes. But if i log onto my apple tvs, i see the movies. this is very frustrating. i've tried most of the "fixes" that people have posted, but the movies still do not show up in itunes.

Hey Slakjaw... I'm having the same problem here (now using 10.6.1); I'm assuming that you deleted the file, library went "back to normal", and then you re-dowonloaded the song. No problems after that? Thanks for your input.

I think I have found the answer.
Navigate to your itunes folder, then open itunes music folder. Hopefully you will find a folder called
'Automatically add to itunes' if you are running the latest version.
Copy all your mp3 files into there and they should start to appear in your library!

I'm on 10.6.1 (7) and have the same issue.......for years I've just used the 'Add to Library' function. Now this does nothing at all
Twigster's discovery of the 'Automatically add to iTunes' folder is interesting and it does work if you copy your folder of files there, they show up in iTunes. Why does this feel so broken though?

Twigster73 + S4MST3R, thank you so much for your input. The thing is, I added abou 150 mp3 files into iTunes, and the strange thing is that they do not show in the library list, but do show on the recently added. Also, if I create a smart list, they're correctly filtered and displayed. I do have my mp3s in the music folder within the iTunes folder; I do have all of my video files in a separate drive though. Any ideas?

My case: music converted by iTunes from AIFF to iTunesPlus, visible as "recently added", but not in Library.
Solutution: logout from iTunes Match, quit, relaunch and login.
I think that the match part of the iTunes-application was hanging and blocking normal behaviour, because a CD I added a week before was visible without problem, but the iTunes Match status was still "waiting" (and "uploaded" now too).

Thanks for your input, Henry. I think that iTunes Match does have something to do with this "issue". Before I read your post, I switched accounts on the iTunes Store (hence, logging out from iTunes Match), and this thing alone allowd the library to "refresh" and the songs were properly displayed. What's curious about this is that it was not with all the songs I added to the library; I added 450+ songs, but only "the first 160" weren't listed in the library. Let's hope that Apple takes care of this bug in the next update. Thanks for your input, you're certanly correct.

Thanks guys, I'm experciencing the same issue but logging out and in again made all the added tracks appear in ITunes. What's strange though is that, before, I restart the Mac and the added tracks appeared in the Recently Added list but nowhere else. Anyway, it appears this is a bug related to the Match feature. May be worthwile chacking whether switching Mtach off and on again does the trick; would save the hassle of logging out and in again.

This is what worked for me:
I was adding video backed up with Handbrake... Nothing was working.... Same old story as the rest of everyone else...
I turned Off iTunes Match
Movies appear, added art work and genre info
Turned iTunes match back on
It all worked like grave after that...
Very weird Apple, very weird indeed...
